Workshop held for advance healthcare



Hendricks County Senior Services, along with VistaCare Hospice in Avon, is highlighting the importance of advance healthcare decision-making, an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD).

Vista Care Hospice will hold a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon April 16 at the Hendricks County Senior Center, 1201 Sycamore Lane, Danville. Vista Care will provide information and tools for attendees to talk about their wishes with family, friends, and healthcare providers, and execute written advance directives (healthcare power of attorney and living will).

As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in the community can be expected to have thoughtful conversations about their healthcare decisions and complete reliable advance directives to make their wishes known.
