The Winona Health Auxiliary will hold an informational program about Healthcare Directives on Monday, July 20, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Parkview Conference Room at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue in Winona
This program will provide information about the need for and benefits of having a Healthcare Directive. The primary purpose of a Healthcare Directive is to allow individuals to retain control over their care, even after losing the ability to speak on their own behalf. Trained and certified Winona Health Auxiliary volunteers will facilitate this program with participants using authorized forms. The session will cover both Minnesota and Wisconsin Healthcare Directives.
A follow-up session will be held Monday, August 3, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Parkview Conference Room at Winona Health. This session is for individuals who have attended the Healthcare Directives Informational Session but have questions or would like assistance in completing their personal directive or to have a Healthcare Directives Facilitator review a completed directive.
These sessions are free and open to the public. No advanced registration is required. All adults age of 18 and older are encouraged to complete a Healthcare Directive.
Our trained Auxiliary volunteers are also available to give presentations about Health Care Directives to community groups. For more information, call the Winona Health Volunteer Services Office at 507.474.3328.
