This column is part of Healthy Adams County’s 25-year anniversary monthly Gettysburg Times column special.

The End of Life Committee of Healthy Adams County met for the first time in June of 2012 after surveying the community about the need for education and information about end of life planning and determining that there was one. The committee included service providers and other professionals working in the health system, along the care continuum and in fields such as legal and medical where knowledge of peoples’ end of life wishes would be relevant.

Linda Thompson is the community services director for the Adams County Office for Aging Inc. and co-chair of the End of Life Committee, an affiliate of Healthy Adams County.
