Apr 07, 2019

Lincolnville Center — The Palliative Players of Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County will present "End Stage" from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at the Lincolnville Community Building, 18 Searsmont Road (Route 173). The free program is sponsored by the United Christian Church (UCC).

Advance health care planning; are you wondering why it is important? Are you procrastinating having the conversation with those closest to you? Unsure of how to start that discussion?

Through improvised, unscripted role playing, the Palliative Players act out possible end-of-life scenarios and conversations, explore decisions and wishes that might arise in a health crisis at the end of life, and offer suggestions for talking with loved ones.

Afterward, the players will walk the audience through the advance directive and some of the common sticking points. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions and learn how to get help filling out advance directives.

Family and friends are welcome. For more information, email  ucclincolnville1821@gmail.com or call 763-3800.
