Community Program to Focus on Healthcare Advanced Directives

Chaplain to Discuss Living Wills, Power of Attorney for HealthCare

Careful forethought and discussion about health care advance directives helps to ensure that an individual’s wishes are followed. People with questions or concerns about how health care advance directives work can attend the free community program, “Advance Directives – Living Will & Power of Attorney for Health Care,” led by Rev. K.C. Schuler, supervisor of Pastoral Care for Appleton Medical Center and Theda Clark Medical Center.

Rev. Schuler will debunk myths and address misunderstandings surrounding living wills and power of attorney for health care, as well as help program participants learn how to clearly communicate their wishes and empower people to follow them.

The session begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., Sept. 26, in the Aylward 4th Floor Bariatric Classroom at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.
