Review for Compassion & Choices, Littleton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am always so proud to serve on the Board of Directors of Compassion & Choices; I continue to be amazed by the breadth and depth of their work. Within weeks of the pandemic hitting the world, C&C had created an extensive Covid-19 toolkit (even including a Covid 19 specific addendum to add to one's Advanced Directive) and made it available to all free of charge. Their "Staying Stronger Together" webinar series brings medical and health experts, policy makers and storytellers directly to you with resources to help inform one's decision-making process around end-of-life issues. Their planning guides impart much needed information I've not found consolidated elsewhere.

When it comes to advocating for end-of-life options, there's no better organization. Not only have they been a leader in authorizing medical aid-in-dying in the 10 jurisdictions, they remain actively engaged to ensure that the laws are implemented, practiced, and accessible to all. This is the organization to know if you want to make certain that you choose end-of-life care that reflects your values, priorities and beliefs.

Review for Compassion & Choices, Littleton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Compassion & Choices for twenty years now. After consulting with C&C's End of Life Consultation services with and for my mother, I became a committed advocate. Their guidance and materials on how to navigate the end of life empowered my family to parter with my mother's medical team to ensure that she got the care that she wanted - no more, no less.

Seeing how the most difficult stage of life could be managed so that my mother was able to enjoy her last year convinced me that everyone should know their options for end of life care. I became a board member so I could spread the word, giving others the opportunity to chart their own end of life paths.
