The NOK Committee will be hosting a workshop.
This is an informal get-together where you can bring your end of life paperwork, ask questions, and receive support from the group. Some examples of end of life paperwork include: healthcare directives, durable power of attorney, wills, and Buddhist end of life wishes documents. We will have sample documents available and can suggest online resources, however no legal advice will be provided at this event.
End of life paperwork can be a work-in-progress. Sometimes a little help from friends is all that is needed to take that next step.
