Honoring Choices was intended to inspire and support family conversations regarding end-of-life care and planning.
Your input helped to better understand what encourages and discourages families from having these conversations.
Visit www.honoringchoices.org for video clips from our in-person sessions and more.
Honoring Choices was led by the Twin Cities Medical Society in partnership with Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) and the Citizens League.
Thank you for and sharing such personal and touching experiences.
As part of this project, we collected resources that may be of use as you care for yourself or a loved one.
We have concluded our work with this phase of Honoring Choices, and prepared our findings in a report for the Twin Cities Medical Society.
The report cites (anonymously) many of your stories. It is the result of your participation. Thank you for your time and for sharing such personal experiences – we learned immensely from you.
Here are some options if you wish to stay involved:
- Become a "Community Ambassador"
Honoring Choices encourages conversation about end-of-life wishes and “Who would speak for you if you couldn’t speak for yourself?” Please contact Barbara Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org to join this important community-wide effort.
- Hear what others are saying
Find out what others are saying about end-of-life family conversations on www.honoringchoices.org. View a streaming Twin Cities Public Television special on the importance of advance care planning on this website. Those of you who joined us for an in-person listening session will find yourself in the Video Stories and/or Documentary sections of the site!
- Begin the conversation with your family
It’s the greatest gift you give your family and loved ones.
To conclude this CitiZing project and the in-person listening sessions that the Citizens League has hosted on behalf of Honoring Choices Minnesota, we are summarizing what we have found about what helps people plan for difficult end-of-life choices -- and what the obstacles can be. We will be presenting this in a report to the Twin Cities Medical Society at the end of the month.
Before we finalize the report, we want to get your feedback. Do you agree with the findings? Do you disagree with anything we have said here? Are we missing something big? Please let us know.
