Advance healthcare workshops in Sonoma



A number of local organizations have come together to co-sponsor educational events during April on the importance of advance healthcare planning. Events are based around National Healthcare Decisions Day, which occurs each year to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare, and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.

Taylor McCandless, MSW, medical social worker with Healing at Home and co-chair of My Care, My Plan: Speak Up Sonoma County will lead two workshops on April 18 where participants can learn about the importance of advance care planning and how to put it in writing. On April 25, Taylor will lead two more sessions that will spotlight the Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST).

On both days, the sessions are 1:30-3 p.m., and 6-7:30 p.m., and will be held at Vintage House in Sonoma.

Joining McCandless at the Advance Health Care Directive workshop will be Jill Cordova Holt, social worker (Hospice by the Bay), and joining her for the POLST session will be Alicia Garcia, social worker (Hospice by the Bay).

All sessions will be held at Vintage House in Room 113 located at 264 1st St. East in Sonoma. There is no cost to attend, but seating is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. Register online at vintagehouse.org/events or by calling Vintage House at 996-0311.
