Peninsula libraries to host advanced care planning sessions

Adults of all ages are encouraged to attend Advance Care Planning programs held at all North Olympic Library System locations this month.

Trained representatives from Olympic Medical Center will discuss future and end-of-life health care choices at four sessions:

• 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

• 2-3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at Clallam Bay Library, 16990 US Highway 112

• 6-7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at Forks Library, 171 Forks Ave. S.

• 2-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

The programs are designed to help attendees understand possible health care choices and make a plan to share with loved ones. Information will be provided about advance care planning documents including Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, Health Care Directives and Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment.

A question-and-answer period will follow each of the 60-minute presentations.
