What is an advance directive? Do I need one? An advance directive gives you control over medical decisions that will be made if you ever become seriously ill or injured. It makes sense for every adult to have one. In this workshop an attorney and a social worker will help you:
- Learn how you can make sure your doctors and family know your wishes.
- Choose someone to speak for you if you are ever unable to speak for yourself.
- Receive a free copy of Five Wishes, a legal advance directive form.
- Get pointers on having a conversation about your wishes with your family so they are not left to guess what you would want.
This program is free of charge and open to the community. Dates will be announced soon. Please call to be placed on a waiting list.
