The FORUM

in 2017 we started a series of presentations called The FORUM dedicated to opening our doors and minds to the community and world around us and to engage in conversations with people from all walks of life about the important issues of the day.  Since then we have enjoyed forums from the United States Institute for Peace, the Washington 2017 Lawyer of the Year for Immigration, the work of the Dangerous Speech Project, Thomas Rainer and his vision of a cottage garden, and many of the environmental groups in our area.  All were well attended by the community around us and the most unexpected pleasure was the Q&A sessions where the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience of the attendees was awesome. 

Normally the FORUM takes the summer and fall off but this summer we have a surprise forum on the brave women resistance fighters in World War II from one who was there and this fall we have a timely presentation on Advance Directives from the Arlington Neighborhood Volunteers.

 

 

Advance Directives Forum

Nov 15, 2018 - 7:30 to 9:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall

Life-threatening falls, auto accidents or illness can happen to anyone. What if you were not able to express your care preferences in a crisis? Planning ahead can enable you to exercise some control over your treatment, even in extreme circumstances. An advance directive spells out preferences, such as what types of medical procedures do you want or don’t want, addresses comfort concerns such as pain management, and identifies person(s) you trust to make decisions for you. An advance directive also enables others to act on your behalf if you cannot. This might be the most important document you ever prepare. Written guidance helps alleviate the anxiety and uncertainty your loved ones may feel when pressed to make a critical life and death decision.


Arlington Neighborhood Village [ANV] is presenting a forum that explains advance directives and is open to you questions. Susan Jung and Carol Paquette (ANV Volunteers and Certified Advanced Directive Facilitators) will walk you through the process and the factors to consider when preparing one, and recent developments related to end of life planning.
