MVCC Aging in Place Committee
Our August Guest presenter will be Joe Barnes of Compassion & Choices.
NOTE ROOM CHANGE TO ROOM 1030 !
We'll be discussing the new California End of Life Option Act. What do we need to know about eligibility? Do we need to know if our doctors or hospitals will support it? Let's get an overview and have a Q&A.
The California End Of Life Option Act was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on October 5, 2015. The law authorizes the practice of medical aid in dying, in which mentally capable adults, with six months or less to live, can request a doctor’s prescription for medication that they could decide to take in their final days or weeks to end unbearable suffering and die peacefully. The law went into effect June 9, 2016. Let's discuss what we should know.
