“How to Get Your Affairs in Order” – Online – Thursday, March 14, 2024 (2 pm – 3:30 pm central time)



Description: This program will provide suggestions for when a doctor says it’s time to “get your affairs in order.” We will examine a checklist for the dying and how many of the items on such a checklist can be done years before a diagnosis.

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:

∙ Understand how planning for the end of life leads to a better death someday and a better life right now.

∙ Recognize the importance of making plans, writing them down, and sharing them with others.

∙ Identify actions that reduce fears and anxiety.

∙ Recognize the ways that death doulas, care teams, elder care attorneys, and loved ones help support people at the end of life.

The link will be emailed to you before the session. This is available for 1.5 CEUs through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois. I’d also welcome caregivers, patients, and curious participants. Please join us! Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions.
