We offer this 8-session class twice a year through the Lifetime Learning Institute.
Attending this class will help you think and talk about final matters with more comfort and ease. You’ll learn from subject matter experts who welcome questions and have nothing to sell. To prepare you to make informed choices, we’ll discuss prices at local funeral homes and cemeteries; prepaid funeral contracts; hospice care; organ, tissue, and whole body donation. You’ll be invited to participate in relaxed, small group discussions to help you incorporate your end-of-life values and priorities into healthcare directives specifying what interventions you would or would not want should you be unable to speak for yourself. Completion of advance directives requires some reading and thoughtful consideration between several class sessions.
In response to the pandemic, Lifetime Learning Institute has posted the following statement on their website:
“We are sad to say that the Spring, 2021 semester of official Lifetime Learning Institute courses is postponed until our community partner institutions can provide us meeting spaces. As soon as that time comes, you'll hear from us!”
