The free outdoor event will be held 1-6 p.m. at 1523 S. Third St., Stockton, and is being held following National Healthcare Decisions Day. No appointment is required.

Advance care planning involves starting conversations about care wishes and documenting end of life planning should you become too sick or unable to make your wishes known in the future.

Lake Stockton staff will be on hand to answer questions and to provide assistance with completing advance health care directives and medical power of attorney paperwork. Advance health care directive books will be provided and the facility will have witnesses and notaries available at no charge.

National Healthcare Decisions Day is an initiative by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s The Conversation Project, which exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning.

In case of inclement weather, the date of the event may be changed. Stay informed by following the Lake Stockton Healthcare Facility Facebook page for updates or contact the facility at 417-276-5126 for more information.
