A free Advance Care Planning Workshop will be offered at the Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House on Saturday, April 16, 9-10 a.m., 1229 Statesville Blvd.

Those attending will learn about the importance of the advance care planning process and about critical documents including a living will, health care power of attorney and the medical advance directive known as the MOST form.

  • Have you named someone to speak for you in the event you cannot speak for yourself?
  • Have you told your loved ones and health-care providers what your wishes are for end-of-life care?
  • Have you documented your wishes in the form of advance directives?

Download and print the GotPlans? resource kit at and bring the printed forms with you to the workshop. Following the presentation, a notary will be available for those wishing to notarize their documents. A current government-issued picture ID, such as a driver’s license, is required. There is no charge, although donations are appreciated.

 Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in. Call 336- 768-6157, ext. 1622 to register.
