Training For Advance Care Planning Advocates – AM Session
July 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDTFree
AM Training Description
Individuals interested in promoting advance care planning are invited to a free training program that will enable participants to become part of a community-wide movement to help individuals make their own health care choices. Today, too many people die in a way they would not choose, while leaving families feeling burdened, guilty and uncertain. Advance care planning enhances quality of life by ensuring that plans are developed to address end-of-life care decisions in accordance with personal wishes. This training is offered free of charge as a community service in promotion of advance care planning.
Utilizing training materials developed by the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California, the program is presented by Janet Thompson, Senior Living Counselor, St. Paul’s Towers Continuing Care Retirement Community.
