or

Second Session—Tuesdays • 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m. • Room 9

March 21 and April 11

Each two-meeting session starts with a conversation about personal values. Defining and discussing values is an important first step in the advance care planning process. Your values influence your decisions about how you want to be treated should you become seriously ill or be at the end of life. The Five Wishes booklet is introduced and distributed in meeting 1. Five Wishes is a legal Advance Health Care Directive in the state of California. The discussion continues with your family between meetings. In meeting 2, your decisions are documented in the booklet and the ongoing process of advance care planning is discussed. You can take the first pair of meetings in January/February or the second pair in March/April. Remember, advance care planning is a gift you give your family.
