Quality of life at the end of life

The Wisdom Of One Daughter

Dear Friends,

Does the process of planning ahead for future health care make you anxious?

You're not alone.

Not everyone who joins one of our programs is champing at the bit to "Start the Conversation." Some find it just as overwhelming as you might. But, they know that in the long run, having plans in place and well-communicated will ease their worries long-term.

The Harris family offers a great example for us: Duriel Harris heard our segment on WBEZ last week, and decided it was time to start talking with her parents. Together, they joined us at one of our Chatham programming sites, Montclare Senior Living, and Duriel was able to understand what matters most to her mother and dad.

Her advice? "Gathering all the information possible" is the best way to tackle our sources of stress.

If you have the same worries about the end of life care of someone close to you, bring them....or the whole family....to one of our programs this week! It's the official start of a new season, so START THE CONVERSATION this SUMMER!


If it's hard for you to make it out to an event- we are coming to you...virtually! Today, we are offering a free webinar in SECURING YOUR CARE PREFERENCES through the American Brain Tumor Association’s Educational Webinar Series. All are welcome to register and stream our program from 1 to 2 p.m.

Please follow ABTA’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and share what you learn with your friends and family!

West suburbanites! Come see us Thursday evening, when we'll visit our friends at the Wellness House in Hindsdale to offer our Caring Options program on hospice and palliative care. We are delighted to offer this program with our friends from Journeycare from 7 to 8 p.m. We hope to see you soon!

Warmly,
