NursingWise, a tiny nurse led non-profit invites you to a community gathering led by Erin Pendexter Stone, registered nurse and Certified Advance Care Planning Facilitator.
What if a sudden illness or injury left you unable to speak for yourself? Who would you want to speak for you? What would you want them to know about your values and wishes?
Advance care planning is a process that helps you:
think about your health care values and goals;
consider health care choices you will have to make in the future;
talk about your choices with your primary care provider and your loved ones;
and develop a written plan for the future (advance directive).
Join us in thought-provoking conversation to help make your wishes known. Learn vocabulary, reflect on your values, choose a healthcare agent, explore goals for treatment, and take the first steps toward completing an advance directive.
