Advanced Directives – “The difficult topic of end of life planning”
Paula Taliaferro from the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging will present on advanced directives and how to initiate conversations on this difficult topic
Advanced Directives, documents for end of life planning, are a topic few of us discuss until faced with reality. In fact, only 30% of American adults have bothered to make their end of life wishes known.
If you lost a parent you probably either were incredibly grateful for their foresight, or suffered from their lack of planning and had to guess what care they would want. Perhaps, it even caused conflict in your family. In many cases, more care is given than your parent would have chosen. Do your family a favor and prepare now.
Although you may wish to seek legal advice, a lawyer is not necessary to prepare your advances directives. There are a number of reliable resources with sample forms and guidance on how to complete the process.
Information and Samples of forms that are accepted in Ohio will be available at the meeting.
