Hospice of the Carolina Foothills to host advanced health care planning workshop on June 17

Published 10:00 pm Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Medical disability and death are not easy topics of conversation in most households, but they are important.
If you were to become ill and unable to make decisions for yourself, how would anyone know what your wishes were?
Who would make decisions for you if you were incapacitated?
What documents are needed to ensure your wishes are carried out?
Meg Hoke, MSW, coordinator of the Palliative Care program at Hospice of the Carolina Foothills (HOCF), will address these and other questions – and provide actionable answers – at a workshop on Tuesday, June 17 at 5:30 p.m. in the Tryon Depot.
Many people are uncomfortable talking about these difficult topics.
The program gives participants a framework for the discussion and presents practical steps for putting the proper documents in place. Making the decisions now – and letting others know you have made them – can be a tremendous gift to loved ones.
Hoke has been with HOCF for nine years and is a frequent speaker on the topic of advanced health care planning.
Millard & Company is hosting the event.
The workshop is free and open to the public.
Registration is requested. Call Michele at 828-859-7001 or email Michele@low-stress-investing.com to reserve a seat.
