National Healthcare Decisions Day – via ZOOM
April 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Circle of Friends is making it easy for you to complete your Advance Care Directives!
“Peace of Mind for Life” is a program for New York residents, designed to engage you in conversations about end-of-life care choices. In highlighting the importance of making choices before circumstances necessitate taking action, CFD will offer practical guidance to anyone towards filling out the two most vital NY State forms—a Health Care Proxy and a Living Will.
These Advance Directives protect your personal healthcare choices in the case of an unexpected event or critical illness that may compromise your ability to speak or verbalize your wishes. Most of us realize the value of having these accessible and essential documents. Yet we put it off, way out into the future, as if there’s no rush to complete them.
Living through a pandemic, however, and witnessing the unexpected deaths of so many has brought our common mortality front and center. Completing Advance Directives now, no matter what age or state of health you’re in, is a good idea. By doing so, your wishes and preferences can be honored and respected. And your loved ones might be spared from the uneasy task of deciding these things on their own.
Attend a free “Peace of Mind for Life” gathering on Zoom . Let’s take the dread and mystery out of making considered choices for the end of life, whenever that should happen! And if you’ve already filled out your Advance Directives, take this opportunity to review and revise your choices.
