ADVANCE CARE PLANNING Mini Conference

11/28/2011 - 9:00am - 4:00pm

CCDC Presents a FREE Training to the Disability Community

-If I have a power of attorney will that protect me if I am in the hospital?

-Do I need a will if I have no money?

-I want my significant other/friend/common law spouse/mother/daughter/son/father/advocate to be able to make decisions for me if I am unable to speak—how do I make this happen?

-I want to make sure my (insert estranged family member) does not get to make decisions if I am not able to speak—how do I make sure this happens?

--I am worried that I will be forced to sign papers that will let a hospital “pull the plug” just to save the state money when I want to live.

--I am worried that even though I said I don’t want certain kind of care that it will be forced on me.
--I am someone’s power of attorney and I am worried that the hospital staff won’t listen to me.

If you or any of your clients have had any of these questions or any of these experiences then you need to come to our ADVANCE CARE PLANNING Mini Conference.
