Such instances can include if you undergo surgery, get a serious illness or are injured in an unexpected accident. Don Timmons from Trellis Supportive Care will be the presenter and will provide the necessary documents for you to assign a health care power of attorney and create a living will. He will also provide guidance for filling out these forms during the program. Registration is recommended.
