GOING DEEPER: ADVANCE CARE PLANNING OFFER
Members
 are offered, at a substantial discount, a one-on-one Advance Care Planning session with Julianne McDevitt, an Advance Care Planning Facilitator. 
 


A good time to solidify your plans
While members are at home practicing social distancing, learning more about advance care directives and either developing or expanding your own directives is a productive thing to do. 
With this in mind, the Village has arranged a discounted opportunity for our members to have a private and confidential one-hour session with Julianne.
  

Topics to address
At your session you will discuss your healthcare goals and wishes. If you haven’t already, you will learn how to appoint a health care agent. You can clarify questions you may have about the process of reviewing or completing your advance directive documents, such as your living will, MA health care proxy form, and more.


Your health care agent can attend

You are welcome to have your health care agent join you for this session. By having your health care agent present, 
this conversation will help your agent understand your goals and values, ultimately helping them make decisions for you if needed.


Fee of $25

Julianne has been kind enough to offer Village members an 18% discount and the Village is covering 50% of the remainder, so the cost to you is only $25. However, if you have financial restrictions and would like to schedule a session, contact
