For the October Second Sunday program, October 13, the organization Compassion and Choices will give a presentation on end of life planning, end of life care, and expanded end of life options, including Advance Medical Directives, Truth in Treatment, and Medical Aid in Dying. Medical Aid in Dying exists in 9 jurisdictions in the U.S. It is an additional option for persons with a terminal diagnosis, where two doctors say they will probably die within six months or less. MAID allows the person to request a prescription for drugs that they take themselves to end their lives peacefully and compassionately at a time of their choosing. Compassion and Choices goal is to improve care, expand options and empower everyone to chart their end-of-life journey.This hour long presentation includes time for Q&A.
