We plan for college, marriage, a baby, and retirement, but we don’t prepare for the end of life. Let’s change that and make a plan! Regardless of your age, it is important to protect your family and safeguard your savings and healthcare wishes. This workshop is presented free of charge by Christina Lesher. Thursday, March 3rd, in St. Jude Hall.
End-of-life care is a difficult but necessary issue to discuss with your loved ones. Tragedy can strike at any time, and you need to be as prepared as possible. Are you? Don’t leave critical care decisions to chance, and don’t assume your loved ones know your wishes! Find out what you need to know and how to prepare so that you and/or your loved ones receive the best care and quality of life as you age and approach the end of life.
