Advance Care Planning Virtual Workshop

 

It’s the GIFT You Give Your Loved Ones…

Advance Care Planning Virtual Workshop:
Living Will, Healthcare Power of Attorney and Benefits Overview

VIRTUAL—Deciding the kind of health care you want at the end of your life is called ADVANCE CARE PLANNING…and it’s the greatest gift you can give your loved ones.

Every day, we make dozens of choices for ourselves. Our friends and family learn these choices over time, remembering everything from our favorite colors to what drink to order for us at dinner. Yet when it comes to some of the most important choices we make—choices about what we would want for our health care if we could not speak for ourselves—few of our friends and family can say for sure what our wishes are.

The goal of advance care planning is for you to live well, in a way that is meaningful to you, for as long as you live.

If you become unable to make your own decisions, and your wishes are not formally recorded, your physician will consult someone close to you about your care. They will rely on this person to try to guess your wishes. Don’t let a guess guide your health care! These questions are best considered, decided and communicated to others in advance, long before there is a health crisis or illness.

AMOREM, formerly Burke Hospice and Palliative Care & Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care, is offering an Advance Care Planning Virtual Workshop on January 18, 2022, at 12 noon.
