We all wish to make decisions for our personal care and medical treatments, but an illness or accident may make us unable to do so. It is important to take steps now, while we are capable, to ensure that our wishes guide the decisions. We need to make clear how we wish to be cared for, and give someone we trust the authority to act on those wishes for us, if the need arises. Planning in advance will help reduce such worries.
The seminar will be held at Mon Sheong Richmond Hill Adult Day Care Centre, 11199 Yonge Street (northeast corner of Yonge and Elgin Mills) from 6:15 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., while dinner will be provided from 6:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. For more information or registration, please call Mrs. Siu at 905-883-9288 ext. 2615.
