Wesley Academy “Advance Care Planning”


“Advance Care Planning: Practical Information about Determining Your Future Medical Care”
with Rev. Cheree Johnson
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM

We will discuss:

• Powers of attorney for health care
• Mental health treatment preference declarations
• Uniform DNR/POLST form

Rev. Cheree Johnson will be the guest speaker. She is the Coordinator for Church Relations at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, studied Theology at Yale Divinity School, studied Non-Profit Organization at Case Western Reserve University, studied Psychology at Howard University, and went to Unity Catholic High School. She once said, “Most adults in our community don’t have advance planning documents. That’s sad because most people will need those documents and, without them, other people will be making (end-of-life) decisions for them…. We want this community to face its fear of dying and end-of-life planning. Trying to make decisions under duress is not the best option… Advance care planning isn’t about dying. It’s about living the life you want to live.”

Please register the class by September 12 with $5.00 for your breakfast. Click on the link below, print out the registration form, and then drop the form and the payment at the Church Office.
