The following short videos provide a brief, clear introduction to the Crestone End of Life Project, its breadth of service and the volunteers who make it possible.
Presented by Informed Final Choices, CEOLP’s educational outreach branch, these videos also offer suggestions for end-of-life planning including advance directives and communicating with family and loved ones.
This series was produced by Peter Taylor along with CEOLP/IFC volunteers and Crestone community members.
