Join us for the basics of advance care planning led by Islands Hospice social workers, Ednalyn C. Diaz and Iris Hashimoto

About this Event

Advance care planning can be a stressful task and one that many of us may leave off for as long as possible. However, if the unthinkable were to happen, we may find ourselves or our loved ones dealing with far more than we could have imagined. Taking the time to learn about preparing and accumulating important legal documents along with communicating your plan with a trusted family member will help ensure that no one has to make hasty decisions in difficult moments.

Whether you are helping someone with a life-limiting illness or just want to put your own mind at ease, join us for a free educational webinar on advance care, led by Islands Hospice social workers, Ednalyn Diaz and Iris Hashimoto.

The presentation will focus on basic terminology like:

● Power of Attorney (POA) and Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA)

● Surrogate

● Healthcare proxy

We will also discuss important documents like:

● Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST)

● Advance Healthcare directives

● And much more!

Planning now will save you time and stress in the future, so we hope you can join us for this hour-long presentation!
