Newton, NC – Carolina Caring is pleased to provide an upcoming workshop for Advance Care Planning and Advance Directives (North Carolina Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney). In this workshop, we’ll talk about what future health care choices are right for you and those close to you. Whether you are a person living with a serious illness, a caregiver of a loved one, or a healthy adult, having a plan in place in the event you are unable to speak for yourself is extremely important. Knowing that your wishes will be honored will allow you to have peace of mind.Advance Care Planning & Advance Directives Workshop

The benefits of this workshop are to educate the consumer, assist with completion of the Advance Directive forms and the notarization of the forms. This is a free workshop. Donations are welcome and will benefit the Carolina Caring Foundation.

The workshop will be held from 2-4pm at Carolina Caring’s main campus at 3975 Robinson Road, Newton, North Carolina 28658, beginning Monday, February 20th and continuing every third Monday of each month. You may register by calling 828.466.0466. Early registration is recommended. Seating is limited.
