How to Discuss End-of-Life Care:
Ensuring Your Wishes Are Known
with Author Chris Palmer
Tuesday, February 27, 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm
We can’t plan for everything. But we can have “the conversation” (and keep talking) with our loved ones and doctors about our wishes for care and comfort through the end of life. If held correctly, “the conversation,” can bring us closer to important people in our lives. This can also create the foundation of a care plan that’s right for us—so our wishes can be understood and respected when the need arises. This can also unburden our loved ones from guessing our preferences. 
It’s also important to complete an advanced directive and choose what’s known as a health care agent—someone who would make health care decisions on our behalf if we became unable to voice those decisions for ourselves.

This program is made possible by an Advances in Aging grant offered by Suburban Hospital to Little Falls Village. Our presenter, Chris Palmer, is generously donating his time.


Chris Palmer is an author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, conservationist, educator, professor, and advocate for reform in aging, death, and dying. He serves on the Board of Montgomery Hospice and Prince George's Hospice and as Vice President of the Board of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maryland and Environs. Chris also serves on the Advisory Council for the Maryland Office of Cemetery Oversight and on the Board of the Bethesda Metro Area Village (BMAV). Within BMAV, he founded and leads the aging, dying, and death group. He is a trained hospice volunteer and was formerly a Board member of the Green Burial Association of Maryland. He frequently gives presentations and workshops to community groups on aging, death, and dying issues. He has written ten books. The latest, to be published by Rowman & Littlefield later this year, is Achieving a Good Death: A Practical Guide to the End of Life—proceeds from all his books fund scholarships for American University students.
