Request Your Free Copy of Five Wishes
Samaritan offers free copies of Five Wishes to residents of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware thank, in part, to a grant from the D’Olier Foundation. Five Wishes has become America’s most popular living will because it is written in everyday language and helps start and structure important conversations about care in times of serious illness. It’s also a legal document in New Jersey.
Timely Conversations Workshop
Samaritan proudly offers this interactive workshop as part of its Timely Conversations initiative. We talk about the weather, sports, and breaking news. But too many of us shy away from talking about what matters most. If a surgery, accident, or serious illness prevented you from speaking for yourself, what would your wishes be? How would you define quality of life?
This engaging conversation gets you thinking about your wishes, guides you to find the right time to talk about your wishes with those who are important to you, and helps you act by writing it all down. This program takes you beyond the advance care planning and living will legal documents. Schedule a presentation today.

"Samaritan Hospice is taking on this challenge year round. Their Timely Conversations Project has coined the easy to remember slogan “think talk act.” These three simple words challenge you to think about what matters most to you, talk about it with those you love and your healthcare providers and act on those wishes by writing them down and providing copies to all who need them."
Click to read about why people become hospice volunteers. Please share! ..."I became a hospice volunteer because I wanted to give back after Samaritan treated 'Mom with dignity and treated us, her family, with compassion and kindness.'"
