End of Life decisions

Submitted By Sean Manalo

ÒGetting The Most Out of LifeÓ is Alameda CountyÕs initiative to engage families in low-no cost services related to end of life care and planning for the future. Death is never easy to deal with or talk about, but not talking about it does not make it easier. In fact, not having a plan can make things more difficult when we or our loved ones pass away.

The program has collaborated with dozens of hospice and end of life care agencies to spread the word about access to hospice and end of life care. We need you! We are seeking trainers, cases managers, medical professionals, and community members to be trained in having Òthe conversationÓ (about advanced care planning).

Sessions will take place in San Leandro on Saturday, February 8 and Tuesday, March 6.

To register for one of the training days, email your contact information to: alameda.gmol@gmail.com

With your help, on Healthcare Decisions Day, April 16, seniors, patients, and their families will have at no cost, the opportunity to meet with hospice providers and advocates to complete advanced health care directives and learn more about health planning.
