Advanced Care Planning with Nanaimo Community Hospice
March 7 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Join us for a FREE information session about ADVANCED CARE PLANNING.
Did you know that 50% of Canadians have NEVER talked to family and friends about what they would want if they were ill and couldn’t speak for themselves?
But 100% of us will die. So what’s the use of avoiding the topic?
It’s time to take our heads out of the sand and talk about our end of life wishes.
We will review and/or provide assistance to adults who need support to complete the documents and to answer questions that have come up while completing the guide.
This is a presentation offered by Nanaimo Community Hospice to help adults of all ages start the process of putting legal protections in place to ensure that you receive the health care you want and avoid measures that you don’t want. If you’ve found the “legalese” confusing in the past, this presentation will help you understand the terminology and guide you to the simplified forms you can use to make your wishes known. You’ll leave with the knowledge and confidence to start the conversation with your loved ones and get things in writing for them.
A time of crisis is never easy, but having an advance care plan in place means less uncertainty and stress for everyone involved …. you and your loved ones. Get the process started now, while you’re well.
