RANDOLPH, Vt., April 3, 2023 — Preparing for the unknown can feel daunting but your family, friends and health care providers need to know what your wishes are should you not be able to voice them. That’s why Gifford is hosting an Advance Care Planning Fair on Friday, April 21st from 1-4 p.m. at Gifford Medical Center’s conference room.
This all-ages community event will allow attendees to learn more about the importance of designating a health agent and completing Advanced Directives. Gifford staff will be joined by community partners including Bayada Hospice, Central Vermont Council on Aging, Day Funeral Home, SASH (Support and Service at Home) and the Visiting Nurse and Hospice for VT and NH.
Even if you already have an Advanced Directive, this open house would be a great opportunity to ask questions and learn how to be prepared for future health care needs. For more information about the event please contact: Emily Pizzale, Gifford’s Social Worker, at (802) 728-7310.
