Talking about dying has many benefits. One of the most helpful is understanding how to ensure the choices made about your final chapter of life are yours. And when you talk about your choices are they are well communicated, you have a good chance at a good death. Join Wendy from Worry-Free Wednesdays to learn the three things you can do to ensure the end-of-life decisions you want made for yourself or your loved ones are well documented and communicated. They’ll show you how to build an end-of-life plan and then how to share it and update it once a year on a Wednesday of your choosing, living worry-free knowing your house is in order before you die.

Wendy Norman is the founder of Worry-Free Wednesdays. She has been researching and engaging with end-of-life issues for over 15 years. Her interest was sparked by her mother’s diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s in 2006. This is when she learned the importance of having a plan before becoming ill, especially when cognitive decline is involved.  Wanting to help others understand the value of pre-planning, she became an end-of-life planning consultant in 2017. In 2019, she left a 25-year career in marketing and program management at Microsoft to invest her time and energy toward end-of-life planning, education, and awareness. In 2020 she helped create and lead a team of volunteers to launch an education and awareness program called End of Life Ready hosted by End of Life Washington. Building on that experience, Worry-Free Wednesdays was created to broaden and deepen end-of-life education.
