Elder Law Day Series: “Your Voice, Your Values—The Conversation Project at ECMC” by Sandra Lauer and Dr. Katie Grimm
September 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDTFree
The Conversation project is a national public engagement campaign dedicated to educating the community on the importance of having advance care planning discussions and filling out advance directives. Advance care planning can help people close to you and those caring for you to know what quality of life you would want before a health crisis occurs. Having the conversation about your wishes for future care will help to make sure your end-of-life wishes are expressed and respected. This will also help the person you choose as your healthcare proxy to feel more comfortable about the decisions they make on your behalf. Participants will have access to The Conversation Project Starter kit and a pocket-sized health care proxy form. The Conversation Project hopes to give you a place to start the conversation around advanced care planning, whether you are getting ready to tell someone else what you want, or you want to help someone else get ready to share their wishes.
