Online workshop series addresses ‘advance care planning’

Three sessions hosted by Abbotsford Hospice Society and Association for Healthy Aging

A free online workshop series called Advance Care Planning During COVID-19 takes place over three sessions starting Jan. 27.

The series is hosted by the Abbotsford Hospice Society and Abbotsford Association for Healthy Aging in collaboration with Fraser Health.

The series also takes place on Feb. 3 and 10. All three sessions run from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

The sessions look at how participants can plan early to express their wishes for future financial, legal, health and personal-care matters to avoid potential future issues, uncertainties or disputes.

“It’s about having a voice, taking responsibility and exercising your rights,” organizers say.

To register, call 778-201-6650 or email cyndi@abbotsfordhospice.org or abbycaregivers@gmail.com.
