Tomorrow is National Healthcare Decisions Day

April 16 is National Healthcare Decisions Day. This is a time to decide and inform your loved ones about your end of life wishes before difficult decisions have to be made.

On Thursday, April 16, 2015 Pastoral Services at Duke Regional Hospital will host an Advance Care Planning Table from 11:30 am-2 pm, at the entrance of the Hospital’s Cafeteria for visitors to learn about advance directives and register as an eye, organ and tissue donor.

Take the time to consider these important decisions, discuss them with your loved ones and let us help you complete the documents. It will give you peace of mind that your decisions are known and will be honored.
