Giving Instructions for Tomorrow

October 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Hospice Austin for The GIFT Project: Giving Instructions for Tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 11, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Round Rock Public Library, Meeting Room A.

Planning for the last chapter of life is a subject many of us would rather avoid. However, most of us will become seriously ill at the end of our lives, and the default treatment often leads to resuscitation, intubation, catheterization, and feed tubes. Some patients want every available technology; others do not. What’s important is that you decide for yourself what you want, speak with your loved ones, and write your wishes down.

In this free session you will learn how to:

  • Identify your preferences, if there comes a time when you cannot speak for yourself
  • Decide how to choose a medical power of attorney
  • Discuss wishes with loved ones and medical providers
  • Complete advance directives
