When & Where
Alliance for Living and Dying Well
Anyone who has watched a loved one suffer needlessly in the last days of life knows all too well the value of meaningful conversations about end-of-life wishes with the resulting decisions being incorporated into an advanced care directive.
The Alliance for Living and Dying Well is helping people have these types of conversations, which are personal to each individual. The Alliance believes that, while difficult, these types of conversations and planning for death and dying are also a time of deep meaning and growth, and they can improve one’s quality of life and ability to enjoy life. We hope you find time to join us in one of our free Five Wishes workshops around the community and create your own advanced care directive. Sign up for one of our workshops to learn more.
“The Alliance has embraced as its mission a conversation that, in the past, no one has wanted to have and has helped us all find comfort in talking openly about our mortality. Where we were paralyzed by fear, we are now liberated by love.”
-Dr. Fred Kass, Medical Oncology Director, Cancer Center of Santa Barbara
