Participant Satisfaction Survey of Older Adults Attending a Death over Dinner Event at ElderCare of Alachua County

Project Description: In conjunction with National Health Care Decisions Day, UF Health and ElderCare of Alachua County is sponsoring a Death over Dinner event at the Senior Center on April 5, 2017. Death over Dinner events provide an opportunity to discuss advance care planning and preferences for end-of-life care in a social setting. To learn more about this unique project, visit All Senior Center members will be invited to RSVP for the dinner via an email list maintained by Mr. Anthony Clarizio, Executive Director, UF Health Shands Home Care (the sponsor of the event). Along with UF Health and community leaders, 40 older adults will participate in the dinner event. Following the dinner, we would like to send out a brief survey to those that participated to assess their satisfaction with the event, advance directive completion, communication about advance directive with their healthcare provider, and comfort level in discussing end-of-life care preferences.
