[Virtual] “Advance Directives” Essential of Caregiving Presentation
Event Date & TimeJanuary 25, 2023 at 10:30 - 12:00pm
Join us for this online event to learn about preparing for future care. We encourage family caregivers and persons living with dementia to register for this free presentation.
This presentation will provide a broad overview of the steps you can take to prepare for your future care and the care of your family member(s) living with dementia. We will cover Medical Power of Attorney (MPOA), living wills, and out-of-hospital DNRs.
Communicating your wishes to your family and providers is critical in ensuring you are provided care that aligns with your values and preferences. We can never anticipate what might happen and the possibility that we may be unable to communicate our wishes one day. This presentation will help you proactively prepare for your future and communicate what matters to you in terms of care.
Our presenter, Alaina Kuhn, RN, BSN, is completing her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at UT Health San Antonio. She has experience working across settings including critical care and has seen firsthand the importance of having advance directives in place. She will be joined by Stett Jacoby, Assocate Attorney at the Law Offices of Carol Bertsch, who will be available to support discussion and answer questions.
