Taking Charge of Your Healthcare Choices

There are many things in life that are out of our hands. This workshop is an opportunity to take charge of something very important – how you are treated if you get seriously ill. While talking about illness is difficult, doing so before you are sick is an opportunity to share with your family and friends in a holistic way.

During our session, you may

  • Reflect on your beliefs and values, identifying what is important to you medically
  • Identify who will speak for you if at some future point you cannot speak for yourself
  • Explore the kind of care you would want to receive at the end of your life
  • Prepare a Health Care Power of Attorney to name a health care agent and express your wishes about health care and organ donation

Neal Heriaud and Janet MacLean will lead this informative workshop.  Janet MacLean is a hospital chaplain and Neal Heriaud is an attorney.
