  • Learn and appreciate that love, companionship, and intimacy are important no matter our age, particularly after the death of a spouse or a late divorce. 
  • Recognize and acknowledge the risks of isolation, boredom, loneliness, and the struggles and challenges older adults face about their body image, their sense of self, and depression. 
  • Gain perspective and inspiration for different types of activity and enrichment opportunities for older adults for relationship building, socialization, a sense of belonging, or feeling desirable.                          

Watch the documentary and participate in a facilitated discussion group led by Matthew Gallardo, Director of Community Engagement & Coaching at Messiah Lifeways.

Inspiring Community Conversations: Advance Care Planning


Event Date

 
Wednesday, March 25
11:30 - 2:30 pm

Hosted by Messiah Lifeways Coaching 

Join us at Messiah Lifeways® at Messiah Village, located at 100 Mt. Allen Drive in Mechancisburg, for a free program to inspire community conversations about advance care planning. Lunch will be provided and guests will be given the choice to attend a screening of Consider the Conversation or to play Hello, a surprisingly fun game about living and dying well. 

Watch CONSIDER THE CONVERSATION...Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject (60 min.) was created to inspire dialogue about end-of-life wishes and promote advance care planning. The film includes interviews with patients, doctors, nurses and clergy and encourages people to have an advanced directive – a legal document that states a person’s wishes at end-of-life. 

Or play HELLO... Hello is a game about living and dying well. It’s a conversation game in which people take turns answering provocative questions about what matters to them. Some of the questions are placed in an end-of-life context. At the heart of Hello are 32 questions in a booklet you take home.

11:30 Registration & Lunch
12:30 Program Begins
12:45 Attendees Make Their Selection and Separate
