Advanced Care Planning with The Five Wishes

Wednesday, December 1, 2021
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Cosmos Room

This workshop encourages you to consider your wishes for medical care in the future, in emergency situations, and for end-of-life care, and shows how to ensure those wishes are legally documented.

It can be difficult to think about medical emergencies. Most people agree it's important to make plans, but very few have actually done it. By planning ahead, you can ensure that your wishes are known and followed.

The Five Wishes is an easy-to-understand, legally binding advance directive that also addresses social, emotional, and spiritual needs. It is simple to fill out--no lawyer or notary necessary. Participants will receive their own copy of The Five Wishes, and each wish will be explained in detail. Presented by Maureen Burns, a community health worker with JourneyCare.

Limited to 25 participants. Register to guarantee your spot, and we will accommodate drop-ins if space allows. All participants must follow the library's pandemic safety guidance.

Online registration is closed.
