Advance Care Planning: Who Will Speak for You
11 August, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
If you had a medical crisis (sudden stroke, car accident or other) and couldn’t communicate, who would speak for you? Vermont has recently made it as simple as possible for every adult age 19 and older to make this important decision. Learn about the legal document which gives the person you choose the ability to speak on your behalf. Joanna Rueter, LICSW of Taking Steps Brattleboro, the Advance Care Planning project of Brattleboro Area Hospice, will discuss this way of taking care of yourself and those you love. Questions welcome. Materials provided.
