Your Life, Your Wishes: Advance Care Planning Class
Published August 4, 2014
While most Americans say they would prefer to live through the end of their lives at home, surrounded by friends and family, the reality is the exact opposite. More than 70 percent of Americans die in hospitals or nursing homes.
As part of our commitment to provide quality care that honors each person’s preferences, Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett is offering a free two hour conversation about advance care planning.
By attending these classes, you’ll learn:
- How your values and beliefs can guide your personal choices regarding medical care through the end of life.
- How to select the best person to speak for you in the event that you are unable to speak for yourself.
- What life sustaining treatments may be offered to you if you have a serious illness and the pros and cons of each treatment.
- What forms you need to fill out and share with your doctor to document your choices.
The Your Life, Your Wishes class will be held on August 21, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. in the Medical office Building Rainer Room. Please call 425-308-0593 or 206-361-1890 for more information or to register. Space is limited so sign-up today!
