A workshop that addresses the many questions we face as we age and consider our own deaths. In addition to advance directives, wills and property, what do we hope our heart and soul legacy will be?
My Little Red File
Thinking about end-of-life issues is hard, so many people avoid doing so. However, putting everything your loved ones will need into a well-marked, orderly format can help your family from having to scramble to know your wishes should something occur. Over the course of two 1 ½ hour sessions, a hospice and end-of-life care education specialist will help a group compile what she calls her “little red file” that holds important documents including:
Completed Advance Directive
Last Will and Testament
Social security card
etc. (you get the picture!)
We often host dinners featuring a light meal and a guest speaker.
All programs offered by the Charlotte Congregational Church are free of charge. Participants may be asked to purchase necessary materials should they be needed, but scholarships are always available. We value your participation, so if the cost provides a hardship, please contact one of the pastors.
