Experts to discuss ‘Five Wishes document’ at San Dieguito Woman’s Club meeting

San Dieguito Woman’s Club will present as speakers at its monthly meeting, on Oct. 11 “a powerful team of Taylor RN, Judith Schnack RN FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner) and club member Jane Savage (who specializes in dementia and end-of-life issues).”

The discussion will entail a overview of the the Five Wishes document and its application to dementia. Five Wishes is the first living will that talks about your personal, emotional and spiritual needs, as well as your medical wishes. It lets you choose the person you want to make health care decisions for you if you are not able to make them for yourself. Five Wishes lets you say exactly how you wish to be treated if you get seriously ill. It was written with the help of the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging and the nation’s leading experts in end-of-life care.

Lunch will be served following the meeting. Guests are welcome to this free event. For more information call 760-612-5804, follow the group on Facebook at San Dieguito Woman’s Club or visit www.sandieguitowomansclub.com.
