Support freedom of choice at the end of life

Welcome to End of Life WA

Our mission is to guide people in preparing for the final days of their lives.  Those who are terminally ill and wish to use the Washington Death with Dignity Act can count on our volunteers to provide compassionate support throughout the entire process.  We also provide support to medical providers who wish to participate in the Death with Dignity Act for their patients.

We promote advance planning and envision a day when all Washington residents will make informed decisions so they may experience peaceful deaths consistent with their values.

We Need You.
