Life Planning Seminars

The Diocese of Richmond is hosting a Life Planning Seminar series intended for anyone who would like to learn more about a number of issues that may come as one nears the end of life and considers long-term care. Some of the topics that will be addressed include:

  • caring for an aging parent or spouse
  • considering assisted living, hospice, or in-home care
  • planning for a Catholic funeral or work with funeral homes and cemeteries
  • Advance Medical Directives and health care proxies
  • the moral teaching of the Church surrounding the end-of-life
  • ordinary versus extraordinary means of care
  • estate planning

“Advanced Care Planning”

Tuesday, August 7, 2018 | 9:00am – 12:00pm

Joining us will be an ethicist and physician from Bon Secours Richmond Health System. The speakers will discuss issues that often arise with advanced care planning such as: What is the difference between ordinary versus extraordinary care? What should I consider when creating an Advance Medical Directive or attaining a health care proxy? How do I maintain the integrity of my Catholic faith when making these decisions?
