About 80% of Americans think that completing a Health Care Directive is a good idea; less than 20% have completed one. Here is your chance to complete your Health Care Directive. Sign up at the Heritage Center or by calling 952-985-4620. A health care directive is a written document that informs others of your wishes about your health care. It allows you to name a person ("agent") to decide for you if you are unable to decide. Chaplain Edward Holland, a Respecting Choices© advance care planning facilitator and instructor and a Park Nicollet Advance Care Planning Volunteer will facilitate a discussion about health care directives and assist those who would like to complete a document. This information session is free for LAAA members. Upon completion of the directive, “Fewer families and healthcare providers will have to struggle with making difficult healthcare decisions in the absence of guidance from the patient, and healthcare providers and facilities will be better equipped to address advance healthcare planning issues before a crisis and be better able to honor patient wishes when the time comes to do so,” says Holland. Don’t miss this chance to complete your health care directive for free.
