Join us for Elder Care Management’s presentation series, Successful Aging.  A free educational Zoom presentation on a topic related to aging will be held on the third Thursday every month at 3pm.

Advance Health Care Directive & POLST:

In our practice as Care Managers, one of the first questions we ask clients is: Do you have an Advance Health Care Directive? None of us likes to think about circumstances that may render us unable to make medical decisions for ourselves, nor do we necessarily enjoy talking about end-of-life wishes with our loved ones.

Advance planning is the best way to ensure your wishes are honored and alleviates the worry of others about acting on your behalf. This presentation will provide up-to-date information on options for making your wishes known, including the POLST (Physician’s Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment) which is becoming the standard in health care and community settings.

For questions, contact Maureen Lawrence, ECM Outreach Coordinator at or (916) 206-4420.
