Johnson City TN Home Specialist: April 2011

Exploring end-of-life decisions - useful program tomorrow night

Good Program - EXPLORING END-OF-LIFE DECISIONS"

The free program tomorrow night, April 28, 6-8:30, has been well-publicized but this is my personal invitation. 

I'll be there serving cookies and punch as a Hospice volunteer and the director of Mountain States Hospice, who put the program together,  is Brian Jones, who bought a house with me a few months ago.   Another of the impressive list of speakers is Billie Farthing, an attorney who has done several settlements for my clients.  It's sponsored by Mountain States Health Alliance and Wellmont Health System.   Call 423-844-5252 or 423-431-6146 for more info.

The flyer says, “One of the most important things a person can do for his or her loved ones is to have a plan for end-of-life decisions.   From preparing for funeral arrangements and insurance needs to creating advanced directives or a “living will,” these are decisions you should make in collaboration with your family – not decisions you should leave to them alone.”  Advanced directive forms for Tennessee and Virginia will be available and refreshments will be served.  

I hope you’re enjoying good health and  have many good years left, but you probably know others whom you could help if you had all this good information, and  tomorrow isn’t a promise, so think about joining us.   

The program will be at Tri-Cities Baptist Church, 171 Promised Land Drive, Gray, TN.   “Promised Land Drive” didn’t ring a bell with me, so I  used the ever-faithful Mapquest.  It was unfaithful so Igot directions from Google.   To save you the trouble, here are directions  - about 20-25 minutes from Johnson City.   Go up I-26 to  Exit 10, Eastern Star Road.  Sharp left on Eastern Star Road. Take first left on Hog Hollow, then second left is Promised Land Drive. 

The topics may not be easy to think about, but it is far easier to consider them ahead of time than under the stress of a crisis, and if you do make some decisions now, you family will be grateful.
