Two separate back-to-back online sessions cover the legal aspects of healthcare and durable power of attorney planning. Co-sponsored by LifePath and Greenfield Community College.

Part 1: Become a Health Care Planning Ambassador by Honoring Choices (Ellen DiPaola)

Adults learn how to make their own health care plan using the Honoring Choices MA Getting Started Tool Kit. We will review the easy 3-step process to complete a MA Health Care Proxy and Personal Directive (Living Will), and talk with your care providers to put your care plan into action. The free downloadable tool kit includes planning information and documents, a wallet card and a handy conversation guide to help ensure your health care professionals can align good care to your goals, values and care choices.

Part 2: Basics of Durable Power of Attorney Community Legal Aid (Thomas Hulley)

Learn about the benefits and potential drawbacks of a durable power of attorney, and some of the key considerations when deciding if a DPOA makes sense for you. Included in the talk will be some information on how to get a DPOA in place if you think it is right for you
