MAKE SURE YOUR HEALTH CARE CHOICES ARE KNOWN. Half of us will become unable to speak for ourselves in a future medical situation, yet only 23% of adults have written advance health care directives defining our health care wishes.

To help you think ahead about documenting their health care wishes, My Care My Plan: Speak Up, Sonoma County is coming here to our Sebastopol Area Senior Center to provide a free advance care planning workshop. A medical crisis can happen any time that might leave us unable to speak for ourselves. That means that friends and family would need to make difficult choices for us. Having a conversation with your family about your wishes is a gift to those faced with that situation.

My Care, My Plan: Speak Up, Sonoma County’s (MyCareMyPlanSonoma.org) vision is for every adult in the county to become educated and empowered to express his/her wishes about end-of-life care, that they have the opportunity to do so, and to have their wishes honored in a medical crisis.
