INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Who do you want to speak for you and make healthcare decisions when you are unable to do so?
Advance directives are documents you can complete to protect your rights, determine your medical treatment and help your family and doctor understand your wishes about your health care.
That’s why Franciscan St. Francis Health is hosting events from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Friday, April 15 to educate the public about the importance of having advance health care directives. The locations are:
· Franciscan St. Francis Health-Carmel (main lobby) 12188-B N. Meridian St.
· Franciscan St. Francis Health-Mooresville (main lobby) 1201 Hadley Road
· Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis (Terrace Café) 8111 S. Emerson Ave.
· Greenwood Park Mall, Rejuvenation Station (near front of Sears) 1251 U.S. 31
The events coincide with the National Health Care Decisions Day, designed to raise awareness about the importance of advance care planning.
