ADVANCE CARE PLANNING-September 1, 2021

Brattleboro, Vermont.  September 1, 2021 10 -11 am and 6-7 pm Brattleboro Area Hospice’s Taking Steps Brattleboro (TSB) program will host two zoom Advance Care Planning (ACP)/Advance Directive Question and Answer Information sessions next Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

Advance Care Planning includes discussing choices about end-of-life (EOL) care with your medical provider, family and others and includes choosing and educating your Health Care Agent and making informed decisions to complete an Advance Directive. Come and learn if adding a COVID-19 or Dementia provision would be beneficial to include or add to a previously completed Advance Directive.

TSB services include the weekly zoom meeting and individual ACP meetings by phone, zoom or in-person to complete an Advance Directive. It is not necessary to have internet services to receive TSB assistance.
