About the event
Planning in advance for our death isn't simply a legal and logistical exercise. It's a way of caring for the people we love, who will be grieving when we die. This month we'll focus on general and Louisiana-specific advance planning considerations, and how to understand this work as a way to love our families — of origin and/or of choice — even after we are gone.
Wake’s monthly Community Deathcare Meeting is open to anyone working in end-of-life care in the New Orleans area, as a volunteer or professionally, and to anyone interested in doing that work. It’s an opportunity to meet each other, to share resources, and to explore how we can support each other in meeting the needs of our community.
Our Community Deathcare Meeting includes a legal clinic, where you can learn about and pick up Living Will (Declaration Concerning Self-Sustaining Procedures) and/or Funeral and Disposition of Remains Directive forms, fill them out and have them notarized for free.
