San Diego County Coalition

Advanced Health Care Planning Workshop

Join us for an opportunity to get help with your Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD)! At any age, a medical crisis can leave one too ill to express his or her healthcare wishes, making it difficult for family, friends and healthcare providers to know what best to do in difficult and possibly irreversible situations.

A written
Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD)

allows a person to express his or her preferences in such situations and allows one to assign a family member or friend to make medical decisions if one is incapacitated and unable to do so

POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment)

is another document that allows a person to specify what he or she wants for end-of-life care if facing a terminal condition. Volunteers who have experience with Advance Health Care Directives and POLST will be available to discuss and help answer your questions. AHCD and POLST forms will be available for $1 each or can be downloaded for free from the sdcoalition.org website.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend by calling 858-635-1224 or by emailing sdcoalition@yahoo.com
