 “Who will speak for you when the time comes where you cannot speak for yourself?”
Advance Care Planning is important for every adlt to consider and an important part of overall life planning.  In this session, Central Okanagan Hospice Association’s specially trained hospice palliative care volunteers and staff present information to help uyou understand Advance Care Planning; what it is and what it is not.  Participants will learn why it is important to reflect and speak out values, beliefs and wishes with family and friends, in regard to future health care decisions.
COHA invites you to be brave and join us to begin a conversation that matters!
