This video provides a brief overview of the content of our program, “Sudden Death: Are YOu Prepared?” – a workshop focused on the task of ensuring that survivors are prepared to deal with the aftermath of a loved one’s death. The result was a program structured to guide participants through the process of creating a “Survivor Notebook” to help loved ones cope after the death of a spouse or key family member. Our speaker is AMAC Foundation partner Cindy Richards, representing Raymond James Financial Services.
Tony Kamus, representing Beyers Funeral Home and Crematory, provides a comprehensive explanation of the issues that need to be considered when someone dies. His remarks focus on the types of services available to the family, the process of making final arrangements, (i.e.. burial and cremation); the importance of pre-planning, and considerations for travelers and out-of-state families.
Cheryl Rumbley, representing Cornerstone Hospice, provides an explanation of “Advanced Directives” and their use in situations where patients are unable to make medical decisions on their own. Her remarks are based on Five Wishes, a complete approach to discussing and documenting your care and comfort choices. It’s about connecting families, communicating with healthcare providers, and showing your community what it means to care for one another.
