Free Seminars: How to Talk to Your Doctor

LONGMONT UNITED HOSPITAL: Nov. 13th 2-3pm
LOUISVILLE LIBRARY: 
Nov. 15th 6:30-7:30pm
 
There are conversations that we must all have with our appointed decision-maker and also with our spouse/partner, parents, children, grandchildren and health care provider– anyone who might be involved in making decisions at some point when we can’t speak for ourselves (over half of us will face that at some point!). 
You may have experienced or heard about:
  • Added stress when families don’t know what their loved one would want as they are dying
  • Conflict (sometimes lasting damage) within a family when there is disagreement about these difficult decisions.
  • Complicated grieving when people are left wondering if they did the right thing; be it too much or too little
  • Health care professionals providing more treatment in the face of a family that is not united
Come hear physicians and Advance Care Planning professionals in this important and engaging public offering.  FREE - call The Conversation Project in Boulder with questions:  (303) 442-0436 ext, 133

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS!
Dr. Eben Carsey
"Volunteering and coaching for The Conversation Project in Boulder has been one of the rewarding ways for me to use the gift of time in retirement from a full time pediatric practice. It involves encouraging people to reflect on life with their families in a way that slowly peels the leaves off an artichoke and gets to the heart of it.  I also enjoy having more time for family, auditing classes at CU, contemplative prayer, immersing myself in our great Colorado outdoors, and doing spiritual direction."

INSPIRATION
Dr. BJ Miller, Palliative Care physician and founder of San Francisco's Zen Hospice will be the keynote speaker at Naropa's Compassionate Care End of Life Conference, Dec. 7-10th.  There's still time to register for this groundbreaking event and hear Dr. Miller's inspirational discussion on "The Civic Responsibility of Dying Well."
We've trained Community Coaches to work one-one with people in having a values-based conversation with family around future medical care.  If you or someone you know needs a little help, we can make that happen - FREE of charge.  Just call 303-442-0436 ext 133.

LISTEN to author Susan Tweit's beautiful podcasts about end of life care.
As you gather with family and loved ones this month, take a moment to think about an invaluable gift you can give them.  Most people are worried about "being a burden" to their families when they are very sick or elderly.  And yet, if you haven't talked about your wishes for end of life care, you may in fact impose a heavy burden of guilt and fear.  Take some time to talk.  Use our Starter Kit and other resources to get the conversation going.  Your family will be grateful.
