The Winona Health Auxiliary will hold an informational session on Healthcare Directives on Monday, January 16 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Parkview Conference Room at Community Memorial Hospital.
This session will provide information concerning the need and benefits of the Healthcare Directive. The primary purpose of the Healthcare Directive is to allow individuals to retain control over their care, even after losing the ability to speak on their own behalf. Trained and certified Winona Health Auxiliary volunteers will facilitate this program with participants using authorized forms. The session will cover both Minnesota and Wisconsin Directives.
A working session will be held on the following Monday, January 23, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Parkview Conference Room. This session is for individuals who have attended a Healthcare Directive Informational Session but need assistance in completing a personal directive, have questions, or would like a Healthcare Directive Facilitator to review a completed directive.
These sessions are free of charge and open to the public.
All adults over the age of 18 are encouraged to complete a Healthcare Directive. For more information, call the Winona Health Volunteer Services Office at 507.457.4316.
