Pastor Amy Hitchens and Emily Hitchens, RN, MN, EdD will lead an informative session on advanced directives, advance care planning and thinking ahead about what your wishes are if some unexpected health event or accident occurs.
Both Amy and Emily are trained facilitators for Honoring Choices, which is sponsored by the Washington State Hospital Association and the Washington State Medical Association. The session offers you increased knowledge about healthcare decision making, an opportunity to review or update your advanced directive, and definitions on who is qualified to be your health care power of attorney in the event you cannot make decisions for yourself. There will also be a conversation about CPR and the POLST form.
The cost is $5.00 for the newly updated materials/forms. There will be an opportunity later to witness each other’s forms once they are filled out, i.e. Washington State Law now states that all health care advanced directives and power of attorney forms need to be either notarized or witnessed by non-family members.
