THIS WEEK: ISSUES THAT MATTER – END OF LIFE. On October 22nd, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, the Sno-Isle Libraries and KSER presented one in the series of “Issues That Matter” programs. This one is an examination of the issues surrounding preparation for the end of life decisions. It was not about “death with dignity,” but rather it was about insuring that the final days, weeks or months are lived in the manner you prefer: it was about having that important conversation now and documenting the decisions so there will be no questions, no hesitations, no confusion when decisions must be made. Listen to this Sound Living Special Edition on preparing for the end of life as recorded for “Issues That Matter.”
