The Advance Care Planning Coalition of Aging Inspired helps community organizations, such as clubs and churches, provide FREE educational events about Advance Care Planning to groups throughout Lebanon County.
Too often we don’t talk about end of life issues until a crisis happens, when people are filled with emotion and decisions need to be made quickly. The end of life is a normal process. What role can you play to help have the conversation?
We invite you to learn more about Advance Care Planning and how to facilitate conversations in your own communities.
Upcoming FREE Virtual Events
Our committee of committed volunteers can help you plan an event, market your event and provide materials.
