Everything You Always Wanted to Know…

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Death and Dying… But Were Afraid to Ask

We don’t know what the future holds for us, but we can often take steps to be prepared. Seabrook Island Village is pleased to present a discussion among a panel of experts on the important and difficult topic of death and dying. We invite you to join us. Please save the date:

  • Date:   January 26, 2023
  • Time:  2:00 pm
  • Place: Live Oak Hall in The Lake House

Although we know our life will end at some point, it is not something most people want to think about. Many wait until death is upon them, or their loved one, to begin thinking about dying. Even then, fear sets in and most are in death denial.

Do you fear thinking or talking about death?
Research shows that those who are comfortable talking about death,
actually do not fear death.

Please join us for a conversation about death and dying. We will provide valuable information that will ease fear and enable you to make informed decisions. The more informed you are, the better your death will be. Yes, there is such a thing as a good death.

This program is free and advance registration is required. Please click here to register.

Here are some of the topics we will explore…

  • The concept of a good death
  • Medical treatments…what they are and aren’t
  • Preparing your death plan
  • Preparing advance directives
  • Palliative care vs. hospice
  • How to help your loved one who is dying
  • Importance of good communication
  • How to prepare for the probate process after a death has occurred.
