About This Workshop
Did you know health care decisions can be planned in advance? An advance care plan prepares you for unexpected events. Learn to write one!
We plan for birthdays, weddings, and even dinner – so why don’t we plan our health care?
What health care decisions are made when you are no longer capable of making them yourself? Who acts as your Representative or Substitute Decision Maker? What are your values, wishes and beliefs?
Learn about these terms, what they mean, and how to answer them in the workshop.
Advance Care Planning is often thought of as planning for the end of life, but it is really about planning for life, up to and including death.
It is a process of thinking about what is important to you and what your beliefs, values and wishes are for your care.
Advance care planning is also about sharing those wishes, especially with your substitute decision-maker (the person who will speak for you if you can’t speak for yourself) so that your family and friends know how you would like to be cared for in the future.
This workshop will be delivered online using the Zoom platform.
