You’ve probably heard these three words – advance care planning – and perhaps wondered about the process. If so, do yourself and your loved ones a big favor by attending this webinar! You’ll not only learn what advance care planning is, but why it matters and how to go about it.
You’ll leave with forms for documenting wishes, values and preferences for your healthcare. You’ll learn ways to encourage friends and family members who may be reluctant to talk about these things. Most importantly, you’ll have the knowledge and resources to help you and your family improve their healthcare experience by having caring conversations before a health crisis happens.
