We plan for the best life possible. Yet, all too often in this planning, we put off thinking out our final chapter for living well with peace of mind and without crisis.
Consider this: Research shows that 70 percent of Americans would prefer to be at home with loved ones in their final days, yet only about 25 percent die at home. And, the most requested advice from legal aid is how to deal with end-of-life issues - amidst a family crisis.
If we can break this taboo, many people will be able to avoid dying alone, in pain and in unfamiliar institutional settings. Many families can avoid regrets, unresolved issues and being impoverished by end of life care.
Below are the community partners that will be providing free information that can help you fill in some of the gaps and put you on a path of peace of mind.
The partners will be able to talk in general terms but you can then make a follow up appointment to pay for their services.
So we hope you can join us on February 3rd, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
In the meantime, to help you tackle this important planning for the best possible life, we offer an end of life checklist. This material is informational only and not intended as legal advice. If you have questions, please consult with your physician, lawyer or other appropriate person.

Prepare An Estate/Financial Plan. By developing an Estate/Financial Plan , you can avoid surprises and help protect the long-term health of your assets.
