ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) —- “What I didn’t realize then is that this was the point of no return.”In the Academy Award nominated documentary short, “Extremis,” Dr. Jessica Zitter discusses the necessity of establishing an end of life plan.
Organizers provided resources and guides for advance planning, which is designed to give people the ability to put their personal choices in writing, taking the stress and worry off of families when the time comes.
“It’s all about values, that’s the point. You’re having a conversation about what your family’s values are and you’re having a conversation about respect. What would respect look like for this family member, what would a good medical outcome look like for this family member?” said Rev. Jane Eesley, Senior Pastor of Christ United Methodist Church.
