Exploring Ethical Dilemmas: Difficult Conversations About Aging (Online)
April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
There are many difficult issues and ethical dilemmas related to aging that call for thoughtful discussion. Although a single presentation cannot address all the issues, we can start the process through this shared exploration and learn from one another. What we anticipate we might do in a hypothetical situation can be very different from what we think, feel, and do when faced with the challenge. Listening to a wide range of perspectives better equips us to make decisions that reflect our sense of reason, ethics, and morality. Having conversations like this can ultimately be helpful when the times of crisis occur. Social worker and Society member Sandi Sacks leads.
This optional questionnaire (PDF) will help prepare for the discussion. Please consider filling it out beforehand and emailing it to to Sandi. All responses are confidential and will not be used with your name.
