Forest Park Review: It’s hard talking about end-of-life options. This group may help.

September 26, 2023

An excerpt from the Forest Park Review article by Tom Holmes, published September 19, 2023:

When Jimmy Carter entered hospice care, it made the national news. And it made people across the nation and here at home start thinking about what to do when it’s their time to go, too. Just talking about such decisions is hard.

Forest Park has some help.

The End of Life Options Coalition is the local action team of Compassion & Choices Action Network Illinois, which on its website describes itself this way: “The Network improves care, expands options and empowers everyone to chart their end-of-life journey. We envision a society that affirms life and accepts the inevitability of death, embraces expanded options for compassionate dying, and empowers everyone to choose end-of-life care that reflects their values, priorities, and beliefs.”

They help with healthcare equity and dementia care at the end of life, as well as in medical aid in dying.
