The Alliance for Living and Dying Well is pleased to announce Laurie Small as its new board chairwoman.

Small has served on the alliance's Board of Directors for five years, representing the interests of long-term care providers.

She has devoted most of her career to the pursuit of quality care and services to the elderly serving in executive leadership positions at two local continuing care retirement communities. In her work with the alliance, Small has provided advice and counsel related to long-term and end-of-life care.

Currently, she is a proprietor of Elder Advocacy Network providing management consulting and individual counseling in the elder care field. Other community service activities include membership in the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara for which she served as president for 2008-09; member of the Cottage Health Systems Bio-Ethics Committee; and board chair of Grace Housing Inc.

The Alliance for Living and Dying Well is a collaboration of Santa Barbara area agencies that seeks a seamless, compassionate continuum of end-of-life care. The alliance fosters learning and healing through discussions of our mortality, and it promotes practical planning, such as advance health-care directives.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
