HR Notice: Making Future Healthcare Decisions – Advance Care Planning

April 5, 2011

Faculty and staff are invited to attend the next in the series of campus-wide programs offered in partnership with the Beloit Regional Hospice.

The latest program, "Making Future Healthcare Decisions - Advance Care Planning," will be held Wednesday, April 13, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Center for the Sciences, Room 101. The session will be repeated on Thursday, April 14, from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. in Mathers, Pearsons Hall.   

Some things are much more difficult to talk about than others. Most of us would prefer to indefinitely postpone thinking about planning for end of life or critical health care. This session addresses some difficult questions: What decisions would you make about the care you would want to receive if you were to become unable to speak or make those decisions?  What legal rights do family members have to help make decisions?  Have you selected a healthcare proxy?  Should you have a living will? 

Please click here to indicate your interest in attending the meeting.  (A response is not required, but will help us plan for handouts.) Please join us if you can!
