This is a free interactive and informative seminar that will walk you through the process of completing your own living will. Living wills are an interactive document that allows a person to detail their wishes for medical and personal care should they be unable to advocate for themselves due to medical reasons, the advancement of dementia or other progressive illness. Topics covered other than medical treatment will be, end-of-life care issues, choosing a medical proxy or decision maker, as well as how to use and update a living will. Creating and maintaining your living will allows you to continue to make decisions about your health care wishes even if you are unable to make communicate, and lifts the burden of decision making from your partner or children.

Blank copies of the living will document will be provided to all participants. Refreshments provided will also be provided. Please RSVP by calling Nancy Herk-Bott, Executive Director of Brunswick Area Respite Care at (207) 729-8571.
