Advance Care Planning Is Part of Life Planning

March 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Presenter:

Melody Jobse, Community Engagement & Development BC Centre for Palliative Care

Program Description:

Do you have a plan for your future health care and personal care? If you couldn’t speak for yourself, do your family and friends know what your healthcare wishes are?
Come  learn how to plan for your future health and personal care, also known as advance care planning. The BC Centre for Palliative Care (BCCPC) will be sharing information and resources to help you get started.
BCCPC is committed to helping British Columbians affected by serious illnesses have the best possible quality of life possible, supported by care that reflects their goals and wishes. We know that ‘conversations matter’ to help people start talking about what is important to them with regards to health and personal care wishes.  We know that the best point of contact is through community organizations like Carnegie Centre because you know your community members the best.
1 hour presentation, 30 minute Q & A
