Gift of Time

Thoughtful Planning for Life’s End

Go Beyond “5 Wishes” in This Comprehensive Five-week Workshop

The Gift of Time program will encourage you to think about how to plan and communicate your end of life wishes to spouses, partners, children and parents. Take control of what you want for yourself and help others address the myriad issues that face all of us in times of crisis. The workshop will be an extended conversation with trained facilitators as well as outside speakers who will converse holistically on key legalmedical and spiritual issues. The objective is to provide participants with compelling reasons to prepare an end of life plan and prepare them to deal with both the rational and emotional elements of such a plan.

Facilitators and experts will guide you through
• Considering common end of life medical dilemmas and options for resolution
• Developing a plan for the seamless transition of financial matters
• Structuring difficult conversations with loved ones
