Description

Created in 2005 by the unification of Compassion In Dying and End-of Life Choices, Compassion & Choices supports, educates and advocates for choice and care at the end of life. As the oldest and largest choice-in-dying organization in the country, Compassion & Choices has more than 25 years of experience in advocacy and service. Their Client Support Program serves individuals, families and others who may be facing the end of life or planning ahead. These services include: support and counsel; local referrals to pain specialists, hospice programs, social service agencies, disease-specific support groups and others; assistance in completing living will/advance directive and in talking to families, friends and health care providers about health care wishes; and advocacy for people in nursing homes or who are receiving inadequate care.
