In one’s later life and at the end of life, caregivers are often left to make decisions. Advance care
planning gives people time to consider and reflect on the kind of health and medical care they would
consent to or refuse in the future and reduces loved ones’ decision-making burden.
“If you have thought about those decisions, put them off, or considered who will advocate on your
behalf for your future needs, our upcoming Advanced Care Planning session is for you,” said Jake Miller,
Librarian, Adult Programming.
Led by the Kingston chapter of Compassionate Communities, the Jan. 31 Advance Care Planning session
runs from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Isabel Turner Branch.
"These sessions are a good starting point for significant, often difficult decisions,” Miller explained.
“KFPL and Compassionate Communities offer a neutral, welcoming environment that allows people to
learn about and discuss what will matter most in their later years.”
Registration is required and can be completed at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/7113390 or over the
phone at 613-549-8888.
