Health Care at the End of Life: A Physician’s Perspective 7:00-8:30 pm
Thursday, November 9, 2017, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
La Rive Community Room
110 Bank St. S.E.
In this second in an occasional series of MCC health care programs, MCC member Dr. David Plimpton will discuss health care directives. He’ll review the content and goals of the health care directive and will provide suggestions for answering some of the difficult or confusing questions it includes such as, “What makes your life worth living?”. He’ll emphasize the importance of having a clear idea of one’s values, beliefs and goals related to the end of life so they can be effectively communicated to one's health care agent and family members. A clearly written health care directive that has been openly discussed with your health care agent and family members greatly increases the chances that your end-of-life wishes will be followed.
