    In this interactive workshop from Compassionate Ottawa, you will learn about who will be able to make health decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable to.

    You will be invited into facilitated group discussions about values, wishes and beliefs for personal health care, that will shape your health care discussions with loved ones. 

    These conversations are an important part of advance care planning - which is a way to help you think about, talk about, and document your wishes for future are and may be one of the most important conversations you will ever have. 

    Planning today makes sure that your wishes are known and may bring peace of mind to you, your family and those who may have to make decisions on your behalf.
