Poet’s Walk Henderson Assisted Living Holds Five Wishes Event
The event will be held on Thursday, July 13
Are you prepared?
Five Wishes is America’s most popular living will because it’s written in everyday language and helps people express their wishes in areas that matter most – the personal and spiritual in addition to the medical and legal.
It also helps you describe what good care means to you, whether you are seriously ill or not. It allows your caregiver to know exactly what you want.
Completing Five Wishes is a gift to your family, friends and your doctor because it keeps them out of the difficult position of having to guess what kind of treatment you want or don’t want.
Families also use Five Wishes to help start and guide family conversations about care in times of serious illness.
Let’s get organized!
Please join us on Thursday, July 13th between the hours of 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. or 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. to complete this very important Advance Directives Document! In just a few moments, you will have peace of mind knowing that your family and loved ones will know precisely how you want your Health Care decisions executed should they ever need to act on your behalf.
Please R.S.V.P. at the Concierge Desk or by calling (702) 899-8028. Poet’s Walk Henderson Assisted Living is located at 1750 West Horizon Ridge Parkway, Henderson, NV 89012.
