Essentia Health to host virtual advance care planning classes
Classes are free and virtual.
BRAINERD — Essentia Health will host free, virtual advance care planning classes from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, and from 9-10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16.
ACP is a process that helps you think about talk about your choices for health care in the future. It’s important for every adult to have an advance directive, also known as a living will or health care directive.
Everyone is invited to join in thought-provoking conversation to discover the value of ACP, reflect on values, choose a health care agent, explore goals for treatment and take steps toward completing a health care directive.
By having these conversations proactively, you can ensure your preferences are understood if you become unable to make medical decisions by yourself due to an accident, injury or sudden illness.
Registration and more information on ACP are available on the Essentia Health website.
