Five Wishes

Joyce Buccelli from Innovative Hospice Care “VITA” will be at the Middlebury Senior Center to talk about the Five Wishes form on Wednesday, April 6th at 10:30 am.

 

Call 203-577-4166 to reserve your seat.

 

There are many things in life that are out of our hands.  The Five Wishes document gives you a way to control something very important---how you are treated if you get seriously ill.  It is an easy—complete form that lets you say exactly what you want.  Once it is filled out and properly signed it is valid under the laws of most states.  Connecticut is a participating state.

 

Five Wishes is the first living will that talks about your personal, emotional and spiritual needs as well as your medical wishes.  It lets you choose the person you want to make health care decisions for you if you are not able to make them for yourself.  Five Wishes lets you say exactly how you wish to be treated if you get seriously ill.

 

This will be very helpful to your family:

 

  • It lets you talk with your family, friends and doctor about how you want to be treated if you become seriously ill.
  • Your family members will not have to guess what you want.  It protects them if you become ill, because they won’t have to make hard choices without knowing your wishes.
  • You can know what your mom, dad, spouse, or friend wants.  You can be there for them when they need you most.  You will understand what they really want.

Please join us for this very informative presentation one you really shouldn’t miss.
