The latest from Compassion & Choices

Join Barbara Coombs Lee on April 16, National Healthcare Decisions Day, to Discuss “Finish Strong”

Compassion & Choices President to host Facebook Live event tomorrow, fielding questions about her new book.

I’ve had a few months to regroup since publishing Finish Strong: Putting YOUR Values and Priorities First at Life’s End. I feel truly humbled and stunned by the response I’ve received from readers in that time. People across the country tell me about their amplified curiosity regarding their end-of-life options, and their excitement at taking their care into their own hands now and into the future. How fulfilling to see this book providing an opportunity for everyone to chart their own course at the end of life and have the discussions now that can make all the difference as we approach and ultimately reach life’s end.

Coming up on April 16 is the 11th annual National Healthcare Decisions Day, intended to remind you and your family to sit down and discuss the topics I cover in my book: advance care planning, dementia, hospice and more. Because such conversations can lead to various questions, I have planned a special “Discussion With the Author” event on Facebook Live that day. Tune in for this unique opportunity to take part in a frank and honest conversation — and share some of my lifetime of learning — about end-of-life care with me. The more you know, the better your healthcare can be. Please visit our Facebook page at 6 p.m. ET/ 3 p.m. PT on April 16 to join.
