Learn about how to talk about end of life issues.
Carolyn is a member of Compassion & Choices and The Hemlock Society of San Diego, and is a trained member of the Final Exit Network.
She supports these organizations, committed to helping everyone have the best death possible, offering consultation, planning resources, referrals and guidance to protect and expand options at the end of life.
The objectives are to:
*Reduce people’s suffering and give them some control in their final days – even when injury or illness takes their voice.
*Make aid in dying an open, legitimate option recognized throughout the medical field and permitted in more states.
*Increase patient control and reduce unwanted interventions at the end of life.
*Pass additional laws ensuring full information and access to all end-of-life care options.
*Normalize accurate, unbiased language throughout the end-of-life choice discussion (“aid in dying” instead of “assisted suicide”).
*Establish aid in dying as a prime motivator in voter decision-making.
*Support the expansion of the end-of-life choice movement and exert a leadership role in it.
Carolyn is available to speak to groups about current research and options available to individuals and families. She will engage audiences in an open conversation about end of life issues and the possibility of death with dignity. She is equipped to help people talk about difficult topics and can assist you in facing a conversation about the end of life.
