End of Life Choices Discussion Group

Group meets at the Fruitville Library. Fruitville Library Map

Last Meeting: October 23, 2015, from 3 to 5 pm.

Once again HUSBAY is developing a Special Interest Group for those interested in End of Life issues. While many of you joined Compassion and Choices, the local chapter is focusing upon education and legislation. In contrast, some of HUSBAY group have more immediate concerns regarding the practicalities of ending one’s own life, regardless of legalities and official approval or special circumstances, Here’s a list of some topics we hope to cover: dealing with creeping dementia; the need for advanced directives; dealing with family members who do not approve or who have religious objections; practical methodology, legal issues for survivors; lingering ambivalence; utilizing Switzerland/Belgium clinics; getting rid of your “stuff;” obtaining tests of chemical purity; overseas procurement; and much more: We welcome your particular specific interests as well.

Please note that this group is intended for those members who are secularly oriented and may not be appropriate for those who have lingering religious beliefs. If you are still interested in this Special Interest Group there will be an informational gathering meeting on October 23rd at Fruitville Library Meeting Room from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. The group will be facilitated by Dan Dana, Bob Nagel and Jacqui Kinnie.

If you are still interested in such a Special Interest group, there will be an information gathering meeting for our Special Interest Group on October 23rd at Fruitville Library from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.

The group will be facilitated by Dan Dana, Bob Nagel and Jacqui Kinnie, and we invite any and all HUSBAY members who are interested, to come to this first meeting.

Please RSVP your interest and intentions asap to kinniej1@comcast.net for the October 23rd meeting.

For those who are attending, we may, if desired, go out to share a light supper following the meeting. We will need exact numbers for a possible supper reservation.

Thanks in advance for your interest.
