Don’t Let the Boogeyman Get You

ADVANCE CARE PLANNING FOR CAREFUL PEOPLE.
He’s not under the bed anymore. He’s not in your closet. He’s in your head. He’s the reason we shut our eyes and pretend we’re not going to die. But if you have an unpredictable medical emergency (fatal or not) or have to make critical decisions with no information, you may end up with the worst possible problem in any vulnerable situation — surprises. The bottom line is: If you don’t know that there could be a problem, you already have a problem.
This interactive workshop provides a comprehensive overview of where and how life-changing decisions could arise, how to make wise, informed choices that define you and allow for unwelcome surprises, and how to build an advocacy team that will make sure you are protected if you can’t speak for yourself.
By the end of the day, you will leave with a solid sense of the realities of end-of-life in this country in 2018, guidelines for advance care documents that will represent your medical goals for legal and medical purposes, and a sense of confidence that you have the information to navigate your own journey. Careful planning for death will change your life.
$200 for first person
$120 for each additional family member
I would give Kim Mooney’s Advance Care Planning Workshop ten stars out of five. She provides materials that really make you think. She brought out nuances from her experiences of real-life situations that turned some of my initial choices on their heads. Without Kim’s workshop I would have written an Advance Directive that could have accomplished exactly the opposite of what I would have intended! Fred C.LEARN MORE ABOUT ADVANCE CARE PLANNING
