Want to find out what an Advanced Directive is??

WED., APRIL 13, 9-11AM...Have you ever been asked if you have an Advance Directive, and wondered what it is? Wonder no more. An Advance Directive consists of (1) a living will, and (2) a medical healthcare power of attorney. A living will describes your wishes regarding medical care. And with a medical power of attorney you can appoint a person to make healthcare decisions for you in case you are unable to speak for yourself. Now you know what it is, but would you know how to do one? If not and you have questions, you can stop by the Kingston Library on Wednesday, April 13th, between 9am and 11am and be able to get those questions answered by Kristen Dorsch, MA, LPC. Kristen works for the Green Lake County Dept. of Health and Human Services and is a licensed professional counselor. She and those in her department are working to spread the word on advance directives to ensure all populations, and especially the elder population, have a decision-maker in place if something would happen to them. Kristen will bring handouts you can take home . The library will also have books available on the subjects, that can be checked out. Mark your calendars, and prepare today for the future
