Carver County Cares: Health Care Directives

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Waconia Library
Activity Room

Leaving instructions about your health care choices helps ensure decisions are made that are based on your values and preferences, even if you are unable to make your wishes known. We will not complete health care directives as part of this presentation, but attendees will be equipped with the knowledge, resources, and where to go for help to complete their directive. This presentation will discuss what advance care planning is and what health care directives can do. We explain who can be a health care agent and the responsibilities of that role. Examples of health care directives and important considerations will be shared.
