Event description

Description

What if a sudden illness or injury left you unable to speak for yourself? Who would you want to speak for you? What would you want them to know about your values and wishes?

Advance care planning is a process that helps you:
• Think about your health care values and goals
• Consider health care choices you may have to make in the future
• Talk about your choices with your doctor and your loved ones
• Make a written plan for the future (advance directive)

Join Honoring Choices® Idaho facilitators, Lynsey Winters Juel, Michele Turbert and Kim Martz in thought-provoking conversation to help make your wishes known. Learn vocabulary, reflect on your values, choose a healthcare agent, explore goals for treatment, and take the first steps toward completing an advance directive.

Ages 18 and up.


When: Wednesday, November 8th from 6:30-8 PM

Where: JUMP Inspire Studio on the fourth floor, take a right out of the elevators and head towards the big Inspire sign.

Cost: FREE This is part of our Connecting Community Program Series where members of the community share their passions and talents free to you, come get inspired! Drop ins are available if there is still space in the class, check the ticket to see how many spaces remain. As this is a free event there are more tickets available than spaces in order to account for no shows. You must register to attend but this does not guarantee a seat.


Advance Care Planning – it’s how we care for each other. It is a process of thinking about and sharing our wishes for future medical care and can help us tell others what would be important if we were unable to communicate.

Honoring Choices® Idaho promotes opportunities for conversations in the context of one’s values, empowers individuals to make and document decisions, and helps ensure health care choices are honored.
