FINAL AFFAIRS


A beautiful, thoughtful and loving gift to give ourselves and our families is creating and sharing our plan for our final days. Being in community as you consider the tough questions that arise when engaged in this unique task can be both informative and comforting. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to the Final Affairs Sessions listed below:

Susan Asher, LCSW, is part of the Inpatient Palliative Care Team at CHRISTUS St. Vincent Hospital. Susan will help us understand palliative and hospice care so patients and their families can make informed decisions about what to do and how to care for each other.


Session 3, Wednesday, August 22, 6:30-8:00 pm
What About Your Legacy?
A legacy is often considered what is left behind after a person dies. Legacy is more about sharing what you have learned, not just what you have earned. It is bequeathing values over valuables. Rev. Kathleen Flynn, former hospice chaplain, a bereavement counselor and member of CHRISTUS St. Vincent Spiritual Care Team presents an interactive gathering about sharing your uniqueness through creative means. Heirs will appreciate knowing how to celebrate your life and carry on in the traditions that are meaningful to you.
