Advanced Health Care Directives and the POLST8/19/20191pm2:30pm

The MS Achievement Center presents an opportunity to learn about Advance Health Care Directives from Elder Care Management’s Care Manager, Felicia Juntunen. This presentation is open to individuals living with MS and their loved ones.
In our practice as Care Managers, one of the first questions we ask clients is: Do you have an Advance Health Care Directive? None of us likes to think about circumstances that may render us unable to make medical decisions for ourselves, nor do we necessarily enjoy talking about end of life wishes with our loved ones. Advance planning is the best way to ensure your wishes are honored and alleviates the worry of others about acting on your behalf. The presentation will provide up to date information on options for making your wishes known, including the POLST (Physician Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment) which is becoming the standard in healthcare and community settings.
