Description

Please join Redwing Keyssar, RN and Gwen Harris, MA, from the Palliative Care Program of Seniors at Home, a division of Jewish Family and Children’s Services, for a unique Advance Health Care Directive planning workshop.

It's About How You L.I.V.E.:

  • Learn about being an advocate for yourself and others; learn about options for advance directives
  • Implement a meaningful personalized plan
  • Voice the plan to those who need to understand your feelings and wishes
  • Engage others to live fully, knowing that the greatest gift we give our loved ones is to have our wishes discussed and assured


The workshop will take place over two sessions:

  • Overview of Advance Directives for Health Care including different types of documents
  • Guidance and assistance in creating, completing or revising an Advance Directive for Healthcare

Session 2: Wed., Jan. 18, 2017; 10:30am-12:30pm

  • Palliative Care—what is it? Where do we get it?
