Drawing from their experience in preparing for her mother’s death, Ginny Going and her husband Tom Henderson led a discussion on preparing for death during our Wednesday evening program this week. This is an important conversation as we prepare for both our own deaths, and walk with our loved ones as they navigate end-of-life care and decisions. Ginny and Tom shared how their experience was altered by their discovery of the book “It’s OK to Die.” The discussion sought to move us beyond the idea that wills, powers of attorney and medical directives are all we need to prepare for death. Ginny and Tom have made their presentation available for those who were not able to attend the discussion.
A sample chapter of the book referenced in the presentation, along with additional documents and information about preparing for death, is available at http://oktodie.com/
