ADVANCED CARE DIRECTIVE — A Living Will
Facilitators: Ruth & Gillian Date: Wednesday 16th August – 1.30pm Bookings: 9718 2717 (A free Community event)
A time may come when you cannot speak for yourself, by completing an Advanced Care Directive, you can give directions about your medical treatment at such a time.
It can be completed by a person of any age and any state of health and stands as an expression of your wishes for the future.
It is designed to apply to a wide range of illnesses, it is for people who do want the possibility that their lives will be prolonged if they become permanently and severely incapacitated.
This is an opportunity to consider your death and what you really want to happen when the time comes.
Gillian is a nurse with over 30 years experience in palliative care.
