Many seniors do not think about the necessity for their wishes for end-of-life care to be put on paper. That is where Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) forms come into play, to articulate your wishes when you no longer are able to. Death With Dignity Laws are in place in certain states to give people suffering from a terminal illnesses a way to gain control over the death and dying process.
Join us to learn about Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment, Do Not Resuscitate forms and Death With Dignity Laws. We will be joined by our guest speaker Lauren Chartier from Premier Seniorcare of Kingston, Massachusetts.
In this webinar we will be covering:
- What is a MOLST form, and why should you have one?
- How do you execute a valid Do Not Resuscitate form?
- What is Death With Dignity, and which neighboring states have adopted these laws?
