Education for Life's Issues (ELI) Speakers Bureau
A Survey released in November 2006 by the California HealthCare Foundation identified that nearly 70 percent of all Californians have not put their end-of-life wishes in writing, and only half have discussed those wishes with the person they would trust to make those decisions for them. "The Pass Area is no exception," said Tim Harned, RN, the coordinator for ELI. "Through community education we "de-mystify" these issues, allowing seniors and their families to feel empowered and in control, ultimately living more satisfying lives."
Speakers are available to address your community group or employees on a variety of topics that include:
Advance Directives for Health Care
Hospice & Palliative (comfort) Care
LIVE Campaign: It's About How You Live
Becoming a Community Partner
Various End of Life and Other Health Care Related Issues
Humor and audience participation is used. "We make it fun to learn about what is perceived as a difficult issue, and there is never a dumb question," remarked Harned. "It's about how you live!"
