Doylestown area workshop will explore advance care directives

July 11, 2018 by  

An advance directive can help to ensure that a person’s wishes are followed if they can’t speak for themselves, and those who take part in a Doylestown workshop will discover how these documents can give them peace of mind.

Students in the session will find out how they can begin the process of crafting an advance care directive and the benefits of doing so well ahead of when one is needed. They will learn the language involved and also how to create one of these documents that is a true reflection of the personal values and treatment wishes.

A review of healthcare power of attorneys and living wills will also be included in the schedule for the event, and the participants will learn how to discuss these with both their doctor and members of their family. Once they feel ready to do so, they will then be able to use the knowledge they have gained in the workshop to complete their own advanced directive.

This information session is open to anyone who feels it may be useful to them. Stationery printers can supply blank copies of the various documents that will be discussed any other handouts that are needed for this sort of function.

The two-hour long seminar has been organized for August 7 at 847 Easton Road in Warrington. There is no cost to register.
