*VIRTUAL* Take Charge! Advance Care Planning Movie and Panel Discussion

April 21, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This one-hour filmed presentation of our popular workshop – “Take Charge! Advance Care Planning Tips” – is presented by Mary Matthiesen of Mission Hospice, Christina Irving of Family Caregiver Alliance, and Gwen Harris of Seniors At Home. The film will be followed by a one-hour panel discussion and Q&A on advanced care planning.

Advance care planning is a process, not an event, and is planning for future care based on your values, beliefs, preferences, and specific medical issues. An advance health care directive is the record of that process.

YOU decide your plan and you update it whenever you’d like, because it’s your life and it’s worth your time.

  • Why did YOU decide?
  • Was it for a specific family member? Yourself? Your beloved pet?
  • Did you/will you share your plan with loved ones to ensure they don’t have to guess?

Are you ready to learn more? Join us! Materials to review in advance of the evening can be found online here.
