Advance Directive Talk 9:15am
Sunday, January 27, 2019, 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Do you have an Advance Directive? Ever heard of a POST? What about a Living Will or DNR? What is a Medical Power of Attorney? Does your family know what your health care wishes are?
The choices you make today may play an important role in your plan of care tomorrow. In situations where a person is incapacitated and cannot choose their own course of medical treatment, family members may be put in a position to make difficult decisions on their loved one's behalf.
This presentation helps you better understand the options available and what role each of the above documents play in your health care wishes. By ensuring your wishes are executed, you can reduce the burden on your love ones.
