Prepare to Care:  Completing An Advance Directive

Thursday May 11, 2017
12:00 noon - 4:30 pm
$25 / light lunch provided
Hannaford Hall in Abromson Center, USM Portland Campus

An advance directive helps ensure your wishes are known and honored when you are unable to speak for yourself.  Please join us for this rare opportunity to hear Joan Lunden, and to learn more about end-of-life care decisions and the Maine Health Care Advance Directive form. Individuals, families, healthcare professionals, faith leaders, students, caregivers are encouraged to attend. Attending with your partner and/or family member or caregiver is recommended. Forms will be available, and facilitators on hand to help complete them.
