Dying With Dignity Canada's Lethbridge Chapter is hosting an evening video presentation and informal conversation on End of Life Choices. This is a free public event. Everyone is welcome. Please save the date and join us.
Noreen Campbell of North Saanich, BC is suffering from cancer and facing the end of her life. In her amazing video, she will share with us her reasons for choosing medical assistance in dying and her thoughts of being approved for it. DWDC Physicians Advisory Council member, Dr. David Amies will then offer an update on medical assistance in dying provincially and nationally. All are invited to participate in an open conversation, sharing thoughts and ideas regarding death and dying in our society. Are we getting more comfortable talking openly about death? Is our community tolerant of a variety of choices at end of life? How could we encourage more conversations about death and end of life care?
Meet representatives from Victoria's chapter of Dying With Dignity Canada to learn and share your thoughts and experiences about death -- a taboo subject for many people in our society. Information on advance care planning, assisted dying and patient rights will also be available. Drop-in.
Dying With Dignity Canada is the national organization committed to improving quality of dying, expanding end-of-life choices and helping Canadians avoid unwanted suffering.
Parking is available in the Broughton Street Parkade under the Library. First hour is free. Saturday rates from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. are $2 per hour (charged in 15 minute increments).
