AARP Hawai'i Caregiver Wednesday 

Advance Care Planning: A gift for those you love

One of the best gifts family members can give to one another is the gift of advance care planning.  Taking the time to do this can help avoid family in-fighting and prevent families from having to guess what a loved one wants during a health crises or serious illness.

  • Learn how to document your wishes in an Advance Health Care Directive.
  • Get tips on how to engage in family conversations around this issue.  

 ​

The best way to help your loved one go through this process is to go through it yourself.  Participants in the session should review the conversation starter kit and Advance Care directive prior to the webinar. We recommend trying to complete the Advance Care Directive for yourself.  You will have the opportunity during the webinar to ask questions to help you complete it.
