Senior Concerns, as part of its commitment to provide support for family caregivers of aging loved ones, will present a community seminar titled “Consider the Conversation” on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Senior Concerns, 401 Hodencamp Road, Thousand Oaks.
This informative seminar, led by Lanyard K. Dial, M.D., President, Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director at Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association, will help attendees identify the factors involved in end-of life-decisions, learn ways to share your end-of-life choices with those you love, and be comfortable discussing end-of-life issues. The seminar will feature a screening of the documentary, “Consider the Conversation,” which examines multiple perspectives on end-of-life care and includes information and experiences gathered from interviews with dying patients, family members, doctors, nurses, clergy, social workers and national experts on death and dying. In the end, seminar participants will understand that thinking about end-of-life issues in advance can help prevent unnecessary physical, emotional, spiritual and social suffering.
