Join us for the first in a series of health workshops designed for Active Older Adults. It's a good time to have the conversation?while you are still able?about how you want to live near the end of your life, so your wishes can be honored when the time comes. EvergreenHealth is a participating organization in the Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest program, your resource to start the conversation and make a personal plan for your end-of-life care. Included in this program are certified facilitators who speak with people of all ages and stages of health regarding concerns about end-of-life care. These facilitated discussions also define how to identify a health care agent, someone you believe is willing and trustworthy to make medical choices if you are unable. Most importantly, the inclusion of religious and cultural beliefs which influence care choices are also revealed. Our hope is that attendees will leave this workshop with the confidence to complete their advance directive and continue the conversation with the family, friends, and loved ones.
Free for YMCA members and community members, registration requested.
