Hospice of Jefferson County is welcoming the public on April 16, 2018 from 12pm to 4pm at our location with free information about advance care planning utilizing the Five Wishes. April 16th is National Healthcare Decisions Day, and all Americans are encouraged to ensure that their future healthcare choices are known and protected. The process does not take long and it is free.
An advance directive is a legal document that tells healthcare providers who it is that you wish to make medical decisions for you and what treatments you would want or not want, if you are ever not able to tell us what you want for yourself.
National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to remind all people, regardless of age or current health of the importance of making these decisions known.
Please be sure to complete your advance directive today and also encourage all your loved ones to do the same.
Hospice of Jefferson County is happy to answer any questions you have; contact Hospice of Jefferson County- Nicole Paratore (315) 788- 7323
