Making A Difference
About An Impactful Community Event
Earlier this week, while representing Light the Legacy, I partnered with Sarah Schmidt and Greg Wenner from Foley Funeral Home. Together, we held an event at St. John's Catholic Church in Foley, MN to discuss end-of-life care, advance care planning, and funeral planning. We were invited in by Joyce Simmons, a Faith Community Nurse at he church, who has taken the ACP Facilitator training through Light the Legacy. Many community members came from the Foley area, and wonderful education and conversations occurred during the evening's session on planning for our future. Whether the discussion moved towards our lives, health care choices, or our death, it was a very valuable evening. It is truly a joy for me to see one of our certified Advance Care Planning Facilitators, who took advantage of the ACP Facilitator training through Light the Legacy, and is now out making a difference in their own communities. Individuals who are making a difference in the lives of others, being that Torchbearer. Of those in attendance, only one had already completed their Health Care Directive. After the evening's session, those remaining committed to completing their own Health Care Directive, and have the conversation about their wishes with their loved ones and friends. Thank you, Joyce for giving back to the community you live in and making this opportunity possible.
