Advance Care Planning -- Taking Steps Brattleboro - Program of Brattleboro Area Hospice (weekly via Zoom): Advance Care Planning ensures that your loved ones and health professionals know what you want in a medical emergency when you are unable to speak for yourself. It's a process of creating a written health care plan (advance directive) that tells others what you would want if you couldn’t tell them yourself. Advance Care Planning includes discussing choices about end-of-life (EOL) care with your medical provider, family and others. It also involves choosing and educating your Health Care Agent and making informed decisions to complete an Advance Directive. 10-11 a.m. You can also find out if adding a COVID-19 or Dementia provision would be beneficial to include or add to a previously completed Advance Directive. Free. Zoom. Info/Zoom link: Ruth Nangeroni, Advance Care Planning Program Coord., 802-257-0775 x 101,
