Ponoka Family and Community Support Services is hosting a day on advanced care planning.
Set for April 16 at the Legacy Place meeting room starting at 6 p.m., the event brings a presentation on palliative care options, hospice care, in home or hospital care.
Conversations Matter: Will your family and healthcare team know your wishes? Think about your values and wishes, learn about your own health, choose someone to make decisions, communicate your wishes, etc., and of course this leads to personal directives and goals of care, and Green Sleeves.
There will also be a presentation from Wombold Funeral Homes on funeral planning.
They will also have a display of available equipment available for people in the Ponoka area. Air beds, sheepskin products etc. There will also be presentations on physiotherapy.
A display of health care equipment/pamphlets will be available for perusal or questions to table host.
