CAMDEN — Advance care planning is an organized process of reflecting upon and discussing goals for future health care decisions. It is an important part of creating an advance directive, which is a written plan that represents your individual preferences and tells others what medical care you want or do not want to receive if you become too ill in the future to tell them, according to Pen Bay Medical Center, in a news release.
Join trained advance care planning facilitators for a two-session workshop where you will begin the process of filling out your advance directive.
The sessions are scheduled for Thursdays, Feb. 13 and 20, from 2 to 3 p.m., at Camden Public Library 55 Main Street
This program is free but space is limited so pre-registration is required. Visit journeytohealth.coursestorm.com or call 301-3950 to register.
