If you were injured and could not communicate for yourself, would your loved ones know your wishes regarding medical treatment? On Saturday, August 1 at 9:00am, join Elizabeth Bradfield of Heartland Hospice to learn more about the importance of having an Advance Medical Directive and how to complete, store and distribute the document once it’s finished. Most critical to the process, we’ll discuss having important conversations with your loved ones so they know your wishes for your care, in the event you are unable to advocate for yourself. Elizabeth Bradfield has been with Heartland Hospice since 2014—first as a volunteer and then as an Account Liaison. Her passion for teaching about the importance of end-of-life planning has taken her all over the Grand Traverse area. She emphasizes that death doesn’t have to be frightening and knowing as much as possible about end-of-life options empowers people when they are faced with a healthcare crisis. There is no cost to attend this virtual program, which is hosted by your Leelanau County Libraries. Email Laura at email@example.com to receive the Zoom meeting details.
