MEDFORD, Ore. — Some of the hardest decisions a person ever has to make may come near the end of their lives, which is why one organization is hoping to make that difficult time a little easier.

“Choosing Options, Honoring Options” is in the middle of its seven-part series about making ‘end of life’ decisions. The third part is this Thursday, focusing on what options you and your loved ones have in those final days and years of life.

“Co-Ho” says it’s important to have this conversation with your loved ones, sooner rather than later. The seven-part series continues through April. You can be part of the next forum this Thursday at the Smullin Center. There will be two forums, one at 2 p.m., the other at 7 p.m.

There are four more forums. Each will take place at the Smullin Center at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. The next forum is this Thursday, titled “Where Might You Be Near the End of Your Life? What are the Options?”.

You can also attend the following sessions happening March 7th: “Taking Care of Business: Why Plan Now?”; March 21st:”Scenes from the End of Life: With or Without the ‘The Conversation'”; and March 28th: “Families Tell Their Stories: Saying Goodbye.”

The final event is a workshop planned for April 4th. It will be at the Rogue Valley Manor Skyline Plaza in Medford. You must call ahead to attend the workshop. If you are interested contact 541-292-6466. All events are free and open to the public.
