Advance Care Planning
"Making the decision as to who will be my Power of Attorney is best made when I’m in my senior years.”
“Advance care planning is all about deciding how I want to pass away.”
“If I haven’t signed a Power of Attorney, my oldest child is automatically the Substitute Decision Maker.”
If you have answered true to any of these statements, then maybe you (and/or your church group, social club) need to learn more about why Advance Care Planning is a topic for all ages. Advanced Care Planning is a process of planning for a time when a person no longer has the mental capacity to make decisons about aspects of his care or treatment.
Every participant receives a copy of the provincial A Guide to Advance Care Planning and a wallet-sized card with contact information of your Substitute Decision Maker.
Six-hour Advance Care Planning Training Sessions are available for professionals as well as a shorter version for the general public.
