Choices That Matter Workshop
September 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Retired local MD Susan Ostertag and retired clinical psychologist Barbara Sinclair will facilitate another workshop exploring people’s goals, values and options for future health care decisions at the Blue Hill Public Library on two Wednesdays, Sept. 5 and 12, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The program is free of charge but space is limited to 10 participants, so registration is required. Registration can be done online at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515.
As people age, they are often presented with increasingly complex health care decisions. Healthy Peninsula’s “Choices That Matter” campaign aims to help people explore how to sustain the best possible quality of life while maintaining control over health care decisions which safeguard patients’ values. Participants in this program will discuss advanced care planning and explore views, attitudes and options for medical and comfort care during the latter part of life or when confronted with a serious illness.
Real-life scenarios will be used to generate lively and interesting discussions. This workshop is appropriate for individuals thinking about their own health care, as well as that of loved ones they may be assisting. This event is sponsored by the library and Choices That Matter campaign from Healthy Peninsula.
