Advanced Care Planning seminar goes Nov. 22

4th year nursing students from Selkirk College are organizing an Advanced Care Planning Seminar/Workshop,

It is a topic that most of us don’t think about until we have to. However, proper care planning can alleviate many headaches for loved ones when the time comes.

To help out, 4th year nursing students from Selkirk College are organizing an Advanced Care Planning Seminar/Workshop, which takes place Nov. 22 at Kinnaird Park Community Church in the library from 9 a.m. until 12 noon. The event is free to the public and will help with planning for end of the life care.

“We’ll be talking topics such as power of attorney, representation agreements, and other information people will need if they are incapable of making choices,” said 4th year nursing student Chelsea Peterson. “We have some guest speakers coming who are professionals in the field.”

Among the guest speakers are Linda Myers from Interior Health; Heather Von Ilberg from Community Network Resources in Nelson; and a funeral director from Grand Forks.
