Story:

This is the story about a gentleman who stopped by our table at this event. He wanted to thank EOLONM for the support they provided for his mother, himself and his brothers during her recent MAID ingestion. He had received a presentation about MAID at a conference in 2023 and informed his mother, who had terminal cancer. She made plans shortly thereafter and proceeded with her ingestion in February 2024. He was very supportive of EOLONM, thankful that we were spreading the word about the law in NM and was happy to share his story.

93% of individuals feel it is important to have an advance directive (AD); however, only 37% of adults have completed one and only 12% have shared it with their doctor. In this seminar, you will learn evidenced-based impacts of advance care planning and the importance of documenting your wishes, having conversations with your loved ones, and your healthcare provider. You will also be provided with resources and information to help you feel empowered to chart your end of life for an experience that matches your values, priorities, and beliefs. Time will be provided for a guided exercise to begin to complete your AD, or to refresh your AD if you already have one. This is a free event, but it does require advance registration. First come, first serve. 24 participants allowed. Contact End of Life Options New Mexico to register at 505-393-1321 or endoflifeoptionsnm.org.
