WORKSHOP:  ADVANCED CARE PLANNING

TIME:   SATURDAY, MARCH 13TH  9.30AM TO NOON
PLACE:  YOURS, BY ZOOM


SUBJECT: This workshop focuses on what you need to consider to prepare for the possibility of losing the capacity to make or express decisions about your health care before or near the end of your life. It is designed to help you clarify who to select as your representative for personal care (your Substitute Decision Maker), and what that person needs to know about your wishes when you can no longer express them. There will be an opportunity to discuss issues in small groups and to ask questions.

MATERIALS:  Sometime before the seminar you will be provided with materials and instructions for their use. However, there is nothing you will need to do in particular if you wish not to in order to participate in and understand the presentation.

REQUIRED DEVICE: To to be able to attend the workshop you MUST have a device that can connect to the internet, preferably a laptop, iPad, tablet, or desktop computer that can run Zoom. However, if all you have is a cellphone, you should be able to attend using the phone.

PRESENTERS: Your workshop facilitators are volunteers with Dying with Dignity Canada’s Ottawa chapter, an all-volunteer organization.

REGISTRATION CLOSED.

COST:  There is no cost to attend. However, any donation you choose to make to DWDC (you can contribute at https://www.dyingwithdignity.ca/give_today) is much appreciated.

NOTE: We would encourage you to invite the person who might or has agreed to be your Substitute Decision Maker (SDM) to attend the workshop as well. Of course, this workshop is designed to help you decide who you could ask to serve as your SDM if you are not sure or don’t know yet.
