Advance Care Planning Workshop – with Kay Longhi & Wendy Norman of Worry Free Wednesday’s
November 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30.00
Fill-In and Complete Important End-of-Life Documents to Put Your Affairs in Order
With unintentional injuries being the third leading cause of death in the United States, it’s helpful to have your affairs in order at any age and stage of life.
Join the end-of-life planning consultants from Worry-Free Wednesdays to fill out and complete some of the important documents that help medical professionals, health care providers and your loved ones know what kind of treatment you do and don’t want if you experience a health care emergency, or you face end-of-life.
Consultants will provide and help guide attendees through filling out a Healthcare Power of Attorney, Advance Directives, Disposition Forms, and any additional advance care planning documents that are needed in the case of an unexpected emergency or your death. If desired, Worry-Free Wednesdays consultants can act as witnesses to have your documents authorized and ready to be copied and shared.

About our Facilitators:
I have spent 25 years in and around the end-of-life-movement. I held a long career in health care management, seeing many sides of the healthcare system. I have also served on the board of End of Life Washington for 22 years and am still a volunteer with the organization. In my personal life, I have been a caretaker and end-of-life guide for several family members who have passed. Drawing from both my professional and practical experience, I now coach others on the value of pre-planning before a healthcare crisis. I believe strongly that helping individuals understand how to die on their terms, provides enormous comfort during what can be a difficult time.
I have been researching and engaging with end-of-life issues for over 15 years. My interest was sparked by my mother’s diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2006. This is when I learned how important it is to have a plan before becoming ill, especially when cognitive decline is involved. Wanting to help others understand the value of pre-planning, I became an end-of-life planning consultant in 2017. In 2019, I left a 25-year career in marketing and program management to invest my time and energy toward end-of-life planning, education and awareness. In 2020 I helped create and lead the team of volunteers to launch an education and awareness program called End of Life Ready hosted by End of Life Washington. Building on that experience, Worry-Free Wednesdays was created to broaden and deepen end-of-life education.
