About Closure

couple_with_doctorClosure is an education, planning and outreach effort, developed by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation, focused on end-of-life care. Its goal is to redefine quality care for people with life-threatening illness by raising expectations and empowering them to seek a different healthcare experience — one that aligns with their values, beliefs and wishes, as well as their health status.

Closure has two key components: Closure Community Conversations, which are designed to launch discussions about end-of-life issues within a neighborhood, and Closure 101, a curriculum of lessons developed to educate consumers and healthcare professionals about end-of-life issues and options.
