The Pacific Northwest University End-of-Life Planning Committee has scheduled an opportunity for family members to learn about issues faced during end-of-life care and the bevy of decisions that must be made. Attendance is Free

Learn:
What is an advance directive?
What is hospice care?
What is palliative care?

Local service providers will be on hand to answer questions about nursing homes, assisted living centers, adult family homes, senior retirement communities, and veterans’ services.

Learn the difference between a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR), Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST), and an advance directive. Families are encouraged to attend together to learn about their rights as patients and patients’ families.
