Conversations on how to spend the last days of life are likely the last conversations you want to have. But a new initiative being launched in Central Florida by Florida Gerontological Nurses Association (FLGNA), a local chapter of the National Gerontological Nursing Association (NGNA), is aimed at making it easier to have these talks and to make sure end-of-life care wishes are known.
The Conversation Project in Central Florida is a public awareness effort that encourages older adults to use a three-step advance care planning process. It includes tools to help individuals and families talk about their end-of-life wishes, commit them to writing, and share them with others. This project has become possible due to a grant from the Winter Park Health Foundation.
