Advance Care Planning and Substitute Decision Maker
Who will make healthcare decisions for you when you are unable and are they equipped to honour your wishes?
Please join us Monday, July 12, 2021 at 1:30PM via Zoom for an Advance Care Planning and Substitute Decision Maker session. In this session we will:
- Determine who your substitute decision maker is (everyone in Ontario has one)
- Learn how to ensure they understand your goals, values, and wishes so you feel they are able to speak for you in the event you are unable
- Discuss what you need to know and understand if you are to speak on the behalf of loved ones as a substitute decision maker.
Register in advance for this meeting below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Please share with anyone who you feel may be interested in attending. This is open to clients, volunteers, staff, and community members.
This is important and helpful information for anyone at any age.
The Evergreen Connection Café will meet the 1st Monday* of every month from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. Join us to explore activities and resources being offered in our community and beyond. As a group, we can share what we are doing to connect, brainstorm new ideas, and help others do the same. This program is open to clients, volunteers, staff, and community members.
Upcoming Connection Café Dates:
- August 9, 2021
- September 13, 2021
*Please note that in August and September we will be adjusting the Connection Café to be the 2nd Monday of the month to work around holidays.
Register with Zoom in advance for this event below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
