Community Presentations

Thinking about our death and discussing it with loved ones does not come easily for many people especially when we are young and healthy. However, with life comes the inevitability of death for each and every one of us. Advance care planning is something to consider for people of all ages and not only for the sick or elderly. The reality is that we can face life-threatening injury or sudden illness at any stage of our lives.

Giving those closest to us a clearer sense of what we want when we are dying, is an invaluable gift that we can give to those we love. By exploring our beliefs, values, and wishes throughout our lives, we are better able to communicate what our care wishes would be if we were ever in a situation when we were not able to speak ourselves.

As part of the advance care planning initiative, the Comox Valley Hospice Society offers support to individuals, families, and groups in a number of ways. Trained volunteers meet with community members to present important information about advance care planning and ways in which to begin the conversation with those closest to you.

If you, your family or your community organization are interested in meeting to discuss advance care planning, please contact the Comox Valley Hospice Society at 250-339-5533.
