Insurance and Medical Aid in Dying Factsheet

End-of-Life Consultant Program: Compassion & Choices’ End-of-Life Consultation program (EOLC) provides information on the full range of options at the end of life. EOLC, and representatives of EOLC, do not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any legal advice.

Doc2Doc- A resource tailored to practicing physicians, Doc2Doc offers you readily available, free, confidential telephone consultation with one of our seasoned medical directors, each with years of experience in end-of-life medical care.

My End-of-Life Decisions: An Advance Planning Guide and ToolKit: The guide will help you think through your priorities for end-of-life care, complete an advance directive and other forms you may need, choose a representative to speak for you if you cannot, and consider common end-of-life medical interventions so you can specify what you want or don’t want — right up to the end. And it will guide you in having valuable conversations with your healthcare providers and loved ones.

Dementia Values and Priorities Tool: The Dementia Values & Priorities Tool will help you identify your personal values and care wishes so that YOU stay in control. You will be able to provide clear care instructions to your loved ones and take the burden off of them when you can no longer make those decisions yourself.

Dementia Decoder: Create a list of questions to help you prepare for a dementia appointment

Become a Storyteller- Nothing advances our common cause of improving end-of-life care like real stories. Everyone has a story, and we want to hear yours.

Two advocates from our group are storytellers:

Bill’s Story

Marcia’s Story

Our CEO Kim Callinan was interviewed and Advocate Bill was highlighted on this show: "How the medical aid in dying movement is gaining momentum in the U.S."
