What Matters

Anderson Valley Village evolved out of monthly discussions about aging that were inspired by reading Atul Gawande’s book Being Mortal: What Matters in the End of Life. It was not a coincidence that so many members of the community had read the book. It was the result of one person’s recommendation. Lauren felt like the book offered ideas that could make a difference to her friends and possibly the entire community. It is appropriate, therefore, that our Resources tab include space to share other ideas about ‘what matters in the end of life’.

This page will periodically post links to articles and podcasts that might help our family, our community, and us navigate some of the more philosophical and emotional challenges of aging. To access the article and / or podcast, click the here button after the title.
