We are all encouraged to have conversations with loved ones about our goals, values and preferences for future health care needs. And, the best time to do this is before a medical crisis occurs. An advance care plan provides information about your wishes to your family and health care providers in case illness or injury prevents you from telling them yourself. This planning process helps clarify what others need to know if you become unable to make health care decisions for yourself. When you put these wishes in writing, it is called an advance medical directive.
At this free seminar, you will learn more about advance care planning and how to complete an advance medical directive.
The free seminar is third Tuesday of every month. The class is from 5:30p.m. – 7:00p.m. in the Executive Conference Room in Meriter’s Business Center. Meriter’s Business Center is located at 2650 Novation Parkway, Madison, WI.
