Event description

Description

What if you found yourself in a distant land where you don’t speak the language or know the local customs? How would you get where you want to go?

Navigating care, especially at end of life, can be like this. Learn to look at the parts that make up the system, who is needed, and what skills you need to journey through the system.

Saturday, February 24, 1:00-3:00 pm, at The 519 (519 Church St, Toronto, Wellesley TTC)

Light refreshments will be available. Accessible space. Allies are welcome. For more information please contact: info@elplanning.ca
