National Advance Care Planning Day

Monday, April 16, 2018
The Heart of Hastings Hospice is proud to celebrate National Advance Care Planning Day on April 16th and we hope that you will participate with us by sharing resources and having these important conversation. If you to go www.advancecareplanning.ca you learn more about advance care planning and find free downloadable resources such as workbooks, videos, wallet cards and conversation starters. The website is run by the Advance Care Planning in Canada "Speak Up" initiative, dedicated to helping Canadians start planning for their future care. You can find information about the different legal requirements for advance care planning and designating substitute decision makers.
Then my wonderful friends from Hospice appeared…what a difference. I didn’t feel so alone anymore. Now I felt that I had connections – just a phone call away - to deal with so many issues. The wonderful volunteers came and sat while I left for a few hours. When I needed equipment it came so quickly I could not believe it. I knew Hospice was there if I needed help. I cannot tell you how much it meant. To each of you who helped lessen my load, thank you so much.
