The Holistic Death Care Gathering is a series of community events bringing folks together that are interested in alternative approaches to death, dying and grief. The goal of these Gatherings is to nurture a community of care and to provide a local platform to share knowledge, resources and learning opportunities. Hosted by Shauna Janz, MA, each meeting will be an opportunity to connect with others and to learn from a speaker on a particular aspect of holistic death care.

Please bring any cards, flyers and information about your own offerings/services for the community networking table. There will also be books to purchase that are relevant to the speaker's topic, and a lending library you can participate in.

We welcome Lynne and Oona from Dying with Dignity Canada - Victoria Chapter to speak about end-of-life choice, assisted dying, and patient rights.

"The goal of the presentation is to quickly bring those present up-to-speed and up-to-date with assisted dying on southern Vancouver Island including: what MAID means, some basic statistics, who would qualify, how one would go about applying (Patient Request), getting approved, what to do after being approved, the peace one feels, setting the date, what happens on the day, what arrangements need to be made and other considerations.

Bear in mind we are in constant contact with senior staff of Island Health who are responsible for the MAID program so our information is current. We have also met with the Seniors Advocate of BC about access in assisted living residences."
