Goshen Health offers advance care planning seminars

September 30, 2019

Goshen Health is now offering free advance care planning seminars at Goshen Physicians Family Medicine & Urgent Care. Advance care planning is a process to document the medical care you want to receive if you would become unable to communicate your wishes.

Seminars will start on October 8 and run every second Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Registration is required at GoshenHealth.com/Find-Events or by calling (574) 364-2288. Participants are encouraged to bring a family member or close friend who will be involved with their healthcare decisions.

The seminar will include how to create an advance care plan, complete advance directives and designate a healthcare representative. At the conclusion, participants will have the opportunity to schedule a private appointment to complete their documentation.

Seminar facilitators are certified by Honoring Choices® Indiana – North Central, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to proactively engage people in our community in conversations with their loved ones and medical providers about their goal for quality of life and advance care planning.

“Advance care planning is for adults of all ages. We are excited to collaborate with Honoring Choices and bring this seminar to our community,” said Brandie Yoder, Director of Goshen Home Care & Hospice.
