BYM End of Life Working Group Forum: “How We Die”
RSVP Required to email@example.com.
Terence McCormally, MD will present the physiological and clinical realities of death as a way to help demystify and demythologize the process of dying. Terence is a recently retired board certified geriatrician and member of Herndon Friends Meeting. He can also share experiences on the interplay between palliative and hospice care, the ethics of health care surrogate decision makers, and the forms and utility of advanced directives.
Though there are not many willing to admit we are interested in such details, most everyone eventually wants to know what to anticipate for ourselves or a loved one. We offer this topic with the hope that knowing the facts might reduce fears of death and free us to make appropriate physical, social, financial, and spiritual preparations for the inevitable.
This is the fourth workshop in the series called Grace-filled to the End. Support is available through the End of Life Working Group, under the care of Ministry and Pastoral Care, to all Meetings and all persons seeking Friendly support addressing issues related to living and dying well as Friends.
