Advance care planning workshop set for Tuesday

Upcoming workshop teaches how to make wishes known in the event of debilitating illness

Island Health is offering a free workshop April 16 on advance care planning. Through documenting and discussing wishes with loved ones, people can make clear statements about their future health care.

The workshop will be run by health care and legal professionals, covering representative agreements and the appointment of substitute decision makers. The workshop goes from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island, 345 Wale Rd. in Colwood.
