Community Nurses Announces End-of-Life Planning Event

It’s never too early to begin planning for one of the most important journeys of your life. 

Whether you are in your 40s, 60s or 80s, it is time to map out a plan for communicating your medical wishes, preparing advance directives, arranging your legal matters, and exploring options for end-of-life care and funeral and burial choices.

On Nov. 9 from 6-8 p.m. at The Red Fern, Community Nurses, Inc., an affiliate of the Elk Regional Health System, will offer Preparing for a Graceful Journey, a series of free presentations designed to help you and your loved ones create end-of-life care plans.

Topics include:

  • Conversations Before the Crisis, by Julie Heary, RN, Community Nurses, Inc.
  • Wills, Estate Planning & Durable Power of Attorney, by Jake Meyer, Attorney at Law
  • Understanding Advance Directives, by Anne Pearson, RN, Elk Regional Health Center
  • Options for End-of-Life Care, by Brook Bower, Area Agency on Aging and Karen Leithner, RN, Community Nurses, Inc.
  • Funeral and Burial Decisions, by Michelle Muccio, Lynch-Green Funeral Home
Presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session. We'll also have resource tables designed to provide you with the information you need to put together your end-of-life care plan. Refreshments will be available.

Reservations are appreciated, but not required. To RSVP, please call 781-1415 or email us.

This program is funded by a grant from the Harrison and Muriel Dauer Stackpole Family Fund.
