Conversations about end-of-life care are not easy. Most of us don’t want to think about tragedy or death, so it’s good to start these discussions in a safe and nurturing environment.
“Honoring Your Wishes: Your Voice Matters,” is a free workshop about advance directives that encourages individuals to be partners in their health and have a voice through all stages of life: wellness, chronic illness and end of life. Made possible by a grant from the Maryland Department of Health, the workshop is a partnership between the Department of Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy, Medicine for the Greater Good and the Healthy Community Partnership at Johns Hopkins Bayview. Participants learn what advance directives are; how to write an advance directive (on paper and online); and how to communicate final wishes.
