Program for October 26
Compassion & Choices - Be an Empowered Patient
Barbara Engdahl will speak about a range of things you can do, choices you can make to become empowered in your senior years. She will discuss Advance Health Care Directives, how to get the most out of your visit with your doctor, how to talk with your doctor to get the treatment you want or refuse the treatment you don’t want; in short how to be in charge of your own medical care. She will also address end of life issues, the choices you have and how to have a death with dignity reflecting the values you have lived by your whole life.
