Plan ahead with Compassionate Communities Kingston

Have you thought about what will be most important to you if you become seriously ill or injured, or near the end of life? Who will speak for you if you are unable, and have you clearly communicated your beliefs, values, and wishes to them? Advance care planning helps you arrange for future care needs to ensure your directions will be respected and carried out.

Come to an online Compassionate Communities Kingston seminar on the second Tuesday of each month from Jan. 11 through May 10. Those who have attended previous sessions and have questions about advance care planning are always welcome to register for a new session!

The six-week series runs from 1 to 2 p.m. every Monday from Jan. 10 through Feb. 14. You can have lunch, work on a hobby, or just sit and take a break from your busy day while listening to short stories or chapters from longer works. Come for one session, all six, or something in-between.
