Advance Care Planning Workshops
Advance Care Planning is a process where a capable adult thinks and talks about what is important to them in relation to their health care wishes, in advance of a situation when they may be unable to make their own decisions. Feedback gathered at a public forum in 2010 lead to the creation of a program to deliver peer-led workshops on Advance Care Planning in the community. VCH worked with several members of CEAN who were interested in facilitating the workshops to provide training and design the workshops. Several years and 2 awards later, the CEAN Advance Care Planning Team is still going strong! Click below to view a summary of the program’s accomplishments to date.
Virtual, free workshops are offered throughout the year. Each workshop is approximately 1-1.5 hours long, and will help participants get started working on their own plans, and having conversations with their loved ones.
