Advanced Care Planning with the HAP Foundation

Wednesday, August 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Members & guests- free! RSVP below to register. This event will be held via Zoom.

Description: This workshop will discuss advance care planning and why it is important. People are living
longer, and medical technology continues to make advancements. Having an advance directive helps to
ensure that you get the care that you want! The Five Wishes is a low-cost and legally binding advance
directive, it is easy to understand and does not require a lawyer. The document covers naming a
healthcare agent, and medical decisions and provides space for spiritual and social-emotional wishes as
well. The presentation will focus on how planning ahead can be empowering and reduce stress on our
loved ones.
