Circle of Friends for the Dying actively promotes events that give people the opportunity to explore their feelings about death—such as our monthly Circle of Friends Death Cafés—and to learn about the various issues pertaining to dying, like preparing your end-of-life directives or taking advantage of hospice when the time comes. We also sponsor events to celebrate life, such as “Circlestock”, a concert and dance party. Our inaugural event was held last year at Colony in Woodstock and pictured here.

Peace of Mind for Life – Advance Directives program
May 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
To highlight the vital importance of making healthcare choices in advance of need, Circle of Friends for the Dying launched a program for Ulster County residents called “Peace of Mind for Life” on National Healthcare Decisions Day in April 2021.
Please register for our next free, info-filled Zoom event about filling out your Advance Directives, on Sunday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Peace of Mind for Life is designed to engage you in conversations about end-of-life care choices and will focus on education and guidance. The intention is for every person, regardless of age or health status, to make well-informed choices and to complete their Advance Directives. This will assure that your Health Care Proxy fully understands your wishes as directed in your Living Will.
Advance healthcare planning is vital!
- Get peace of mind knowing you have documented your choices to be carried out on your behalf by someone you trust.
- Give peace of mind when your healthcare wishes are clearly stated during times of crisis.
Join in the conversation to ensure that the person who will speak for you (your Health Care Proxy) knows your wishes (your Living Will).
- Please advance register for the May 30 Zoom event (registration is required)
- Download the free New York State Advance Directive forms here, and we’ll help you fill them out on May 30. Or call 845-802-0970 and leave your mailing address to have the forms mailed to you.
