Community Health Program Highlights End of Life Decisions

The Health & Wellness Cabinet Ministry of The Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay will present the first of four sessions dealing with End of Life Directives April 18.

Gregg Casperson of Casperson Funeral Home will speak about funeral pre-planning, organ donation, and other details about end-of-life decisions that he has found helpful in his experiences with others. The session will begin at 4 pm and will be held at Shepherd of the Bay.

Casperson’s presentation is the first in the series of what organizers are calling “the most important and informative series that we have ever presented.” Attorney Colin Dahl will discuss living wills May 16 at 4 pm. He’ll describe how to make the document official, who is responsible for it, and differences in how different states handle them. On June 27 at 4 pm registered nurse Christine Wehrs tackles the question, “what happens if things don’t go as I planned?” Social worker Katie Graf will help people complete a living will on July 11 from 3 – 5 pm.

The presentations are free to the public and we invite you to come and bring a friend.
