Choices That Matter Workshop

Barb and Susan Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 2/16/2019
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
Description:
 Retired local M.D. Susan Ostertag and retired clinical psychologist Barbara Sinclair will facilitate a discussion exploring people’s goals, values, and options for future healthcare decisions at the Blue Hill Public Library on Saturday, February 16, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The program is free of charge but space is limited to 10 participants so registration is required and can be done online at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515.

As people age, they are often presented with increasingly complex healthcare decisions. Healthy Peninsula’s “Choices That Matter” campaign aims to help people explore how to sustain the best possible quality of life while maintaining control over healthcare decisions which safeguard patients’ values. Participants in this program will discuss advanced care planning and explore views, attitudes and options for medical and comfort care during the latter part of life or when confronted with a serious illness.

Real-life scenarios will be used to generate lively, and interesting discussions. This workshop is appropriate for individuals thinking about their own healthcare, as well as that of loved ones they may be assisting. This event is sponsored by the library and Choices That Matter campaign. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
