3. Introduction to Advance Care Planning (ACP) (June 20th)

It’s never too early to start thinking about your health care options, to articulate your wants and needs for a time when you are not able to speak for yourself. If something unexpected were to happen tomorrow, what care would you want to receive – or not receive? These decisions are challenging and this session will let you know how to start creating an Advance Care Plan.

Guest speakers: representatives from Dying with Dignity Canada.
