Forrest General Hospital's Support Groups, Classes & Events

ADVANCE CARE PLANNING

No event found!

Advance Care Planning is an organized process of communication to help individuals understand, reflect upon, and discuss goals for future healthcare decisions in the context of their values and beliefs. When this process is done well, it has the power to produce a written plan (advanced directive) that accurately represents the individual’s preferences and thoroughly prepares others to make healthcare decisions consistent with these preferences. Advance care planning is appropriate for any adult. For more information, please contact Amber Chancelor at 601-288-3131. This event is free to attend.
