Washington State, along with Oregon, leads our nation in end-of-life choices for the terminally ill. In 2008, Initiative 1000, better known as the “Death With Dignity Act,” passed with nearly 60% of the popular vote. Since then, End of Life of Washington has stewarded the law, providing a well-trained bank of Client Support Volunteers to counsel Washington residents interested in exploring their end-of-life options. In addition, End of Life of Washington promotes its robust Advance Directive for Heath Care through seminars and one-on-one consultations. This workshop presented by End of Life Washington’s Executive Director Sally McLaughlin will highlight the many services provided by End of Life of Washington, with particular emphasis on our state’s Death With Dignity Law.
Sally McLaughlin, MA travels the state giving presentations on the many services provided by the non-profit organization: the Advance Directive for Health Care, the Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Mental Health Advance Directive, Washington State’s Death With Dignity Law, as well as a wide array of end-of-life choices.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
