Advance planning workshop Saturday at Kiser Hospice

Published 2:14 pm Tuesday, April 12, 2016

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 http://www.gotplans123.org 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.

This event was organized by the NCPCC Regional Coalition — a unification of the North Carolina Community Partnership for Compassionate Care (NCPCC), The North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) and the North Carolina Medical Society Foundation (NCMSF).

Local sponsors are Hospice & Palliative Carecenter, Rowan Hospice & Palliative CARE, Novant Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health.
