April 16: 5th Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day
Have you and your loved ones made your healthcare end of life decisions yet? Have you drafted an Advance Directive to communicate your end of life choices in writing? Monday, April 16th marks the Fifth Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day. Consider setting aside some time in your busy schedule to learn more about end of life care options and possible medical decisions that can arise during a health crisis.
To learn more about Advance Directives and other information about end of life decisions, please visit the “Advance Directive” section of the SeniorNavigator website.
You will find Virginia Advance Directive forms here to complete, as well as a link to the Commonwealth of Virginia's Advance Health Care Directive Registry, where you can securely store your medical power-of-attorney, do-not-resusitate orders, and other health care wishes.
SeniorNavigator is the go-to website for Virginians who need information on services for our citizens of "a certain age!" Caregiving, housing and long term care, transportation, and legal and financial information for the aging can be found at SeniorNavigator.org.
