Opening the Door for End of Life Conversations

Do you have a living will or durable power of attorney for health care? Do your parents? If not, how will loved ones know your/their wishes for end of life care?
This can be a tough topic to face in our own lives, and even harder to bring up with parents and adult children. But end of life planning tells family what kind of medical treatment you want (or don’t want), allows you to distribute your estate the way you want, and allows you to specify who will raise your children should the unthinkable happen. If you do not specify your wishes in these areas, the government will make decisions for you.

You are invited to “Timely Conversations: A Legacy Stewardship Seminar Featuring Five Wishes” Tuesday, January 30, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Community Christian School Auditorium, for information and discussion with CCS Grandparent Dr. George Borders. A retired university and foundation president, Dr. Borders is a knowledgeable friend of the school who does not stand to financially benefit in any way through what he shares.

Dr. Borders will discuss – in easy-to-understand terms – critical matters to consider leading up to and including the end of your life: healthcare documents, legal matters, real estate concerns and financial issues. He’ll review “Five Wishes,” an easy to use living will document that is legal in 42 states and the District of Columbia. He’ll touch on ways that end of life planning can bless your school, church, or favorite nonprofit cause – “estate stewardship” can be part of your legacy. After an informational first hour from 6:00-7:00 p.m., attendees are welcome to stay for Q&A.
Each family will leave with a copy of Five Wishes, and be better prepared to have end-of-life conversations with spouses, parents, or adult children.

Please RSVP to Anne Munson at so we can reserve your Five Wishes document.

The Community Christian School Auditorium is located at 4859 Kerry Forest Parkway, Tallahassee, FL 32309.
