What if you had an injury or illness that left you unable to communicate? Would your family or friends know what kind of medical treatment you would want? The Senior Center will offer a 2-hour workshop to prepare individuals to complete an advance directive document using the Honor Your Wishes health care directive, a legal document in the state of Iowa. In addition, this workshop will present:
– Tips to start conversations about what is important to you
– Considerations for choosing a health care agent (surrogate decision maker)
– Advance care planning resources available to you in the community
