Planning for the last chapter of life can be overwhelming, but it’s one of the greatest gifts you can give to those you love. The GIFT Project is a FREE hands-on advance planning workshop. RSVP by noon May 1st for a free box lunch from Jason's Deli (see below for sandwich selection).
Join Ginny Erboe, RN, MSN from the GIFT Project for lunch, while learning:
  • How to identify your preferences, if there comes a time when you cannot speak for yourself
  • How to choose a medical power of attorney
  • How to complete your Texas advance directives
  • The benefits of hospice care
  • How to qualify for hospice services

  • The myths of hospice care
  • The difference between hospice and palliative care

Experts will be on-hand to help you with healthcare planning forms and answers questions about Texas Advance Directives. The sessions and legal documents are free and available for everyone 18 years of age and older. This interactive seminar empowers participants to identify what matters most to them and take steps to ensure their wishes are honored.
