SeniorBook–A place for your wishes and your memories
What shall we do, to plan for the last chapter of our lives?
Whatever we do, it is not easy to do alone, and it will affect everyone who loves us.
That’s why http://www.CaringAdvocates.org has two kinds of online communities:
One starts with online chatting to discuss end-of-life treatment preferences.
The community may help us to locate others who may be willing to serve as proxies/agents–individuals we select to designate to make our medical decisions after we no longer can.
The other online community starts with online chatting to discuss our deep life values and memories, the most important aspects about ourselves that we wish to leave as memories for those who love us. Both chat rooms are at http://www.seniorbook.org.
As our ideas develop, we might consider posting them. You can post your online book, an audio recording that others can listen to, or a or video recording for others to view.
When we’ve decided what our end-of-life preferences are, we can post them on this website. (I have posted a blank “Physician’s Orders to Permit Natural Dying” as an example.)
We or others can also post material for others to remember. (I posted a photo of my step-father and me, and my audio recording about him on this website.)
To return to this website again, this is the address: http://www.seniorbook.wordpress.com.
If you forget the links, go to http://www.CaringAdvocates.org. This site has links to both websites on its home page.
Thanks for contributing. I wish you all a life made more meaningful by your sharing it with others.
