Facing Key Issues
Before A Crisis Occurs

      If you have a medical emergency today, does your family or a friend know your health care wishes? Do they have access to your medical records and other important documents? Do they have the legal authority to protect your interests?
    Join us on Tuesday, March 21, at 7:30 pm, at the Chevy Chase Community Center (5601 Connecticut Ave., NW), for a panel discussion co-sponsored with Northwest Neighbors Village (NNV): Facing Key Issues Before A Crisis Occurs: Gathering, Storing and Sharing Important Information. NNV is a volunteer-based community first non-profit that provides a community network of support with neighbors giving neighbors the confidence and practical help to thrive while staying healthy, engaged and connected to the community. All are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
    The featured program will address the oh-so imortant, but too often ignored, topic of preparing for the future. We know it is necessary to creat a plan but without a forced deadline, many of us put it off. Unfortunately, neglecting to plan or avoiding the topic with loved ones adds undue stress in a crisis situation and can have costly consequences. Regardless of your age or health, the time to start planning is now.
    Three panelists experienced in facing these issues, Christine Bitzer, Assistant Director Seabury Resources for Aging Care Management, Kay Bransford founder of MemoryBanc, and Stephanie Chong, NNV's Executive Director, will discuss the type of information you need to plan for your future, how to organize and store important information, and how and with whom to share your information.
    This program is ideal for adults of all ages. Seniors and adult children may especially benefit from attending together. Come learn what steps to take now to avoid confusion in the future.
