The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute will hold an advance care planning workshop from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, October 17, at the Reuter Center, home of OLLI at UNC Asheville. This workshop is free and open to the public.
The workshop will feature a panel experienced in addressing end-of-life issues. Discussion will include communicating treatment wishes to family and medical personnel, ethical and legal issues, and the uses of advance directives. Assistance will be provided for those wishing to complete a legally valid advance directive, including the notarization required in North Carolina, using the “Five Wishes” format.
