Free Living-Will workshop/lunch is Wednesday, 4 Jan 2017
By Linda Waggener
Do you have a Living Will? Mom wound up being hospitalized this year and it was one of the first questions asked. She did not have one and that left it open as to what her desires were in case she wound up on life support. Absolutely no one wants to think about that possibility. However, more and more of us are learning that having one could mean less suffering.
Betty Judd, RN, will present a free workshop on Living Wills to the public next Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017 at 11amCT at the Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street in Columbia.
A Living will contains personal directives, created in advance so that each of us has our wishes known beforehand. It is a legal document.
Mom still has not been ready to make decisions with her children -- Presbyterian training from her mother sort of dictates that things like this be left to "when it's your time, it's your time and why discuss it?"
The challenge she hasn't yet been ready to examine in detail is how that philosophy fits with today's extremely complex medical treatment system -- where and when and how much.
I'm making time to go learn more about what we don't know that we don't know because whatever happens to one of us will eventually come to importance for the other.
The meeting and light lunch are free and open to all. Presenter Betty Judd can be reached at 270-576-3325.
