Advanced directives an upcoming topic of discussion

At Waterstone at Wellesley, we’re pleased to host events that entertain, inform and engage our audiences. When we’re not getting feet tapping with upbeat musical performances, we’re often holding presentations on issues that really matter to our residents and the public.

As such, Suzanne Nagda is visiting Waterstone next week to discuss advanced directives as part of our Super Prevention Series, which has previously featured discussions on staying heart-healthy and hypertension and diabetes.

Advanced directives are important legal documents that allow you to clearly state your end-of-life wishes prior to any unforeseen tragedy or event that leaves you unable to do so.

Advanced directives will provide your friends, family and health care professionals with clear instructions on the kind of medical care you would like when you are not in the position to make your wishes known. This includes providing directions on whether you would like medical care if you were to become unable to make decisions on your own.

MedlinePlus also suggests including instructions on: the use of dialysis and breathing machines, if you want to be resuscitated if your breathing or heartbeat stops, tube feeding and organ or tissue donation.

Nagda will discuss these topics and more in greater detail on July 22. Please join us!
