Looking Ahead sets dates for advance care planning workshops


Looking Ahead, the local nonprofit that encourages and assists individuals to document their future healthcare choices, has announced early 2020 dates for its My Wishes Workshop small-group advance care planning program.

Workshops takes place 10 a.m. Thursdays Jan. 23, Feb. 20 and March 19.

The one-and-a-half- to two-hour workshops are held at Looking Ahead’s new Advance Care Planning office in Suite 504 of the Executive Center at 5033 Swamp Road in Fountainville. The workshop is free, but space is limited.

Register at 267-544-9580 or BPayn@LookingAheadACP.

Advance care planning is the process of thinking about your values and beliefs, weighing your options and deciding what health care you want — and don’t want — in the future. You document your decisions in an advance healthcare directive, a legal document that also names your choice of a healthcare agent who will speak on your behalf if you become unable to make your own care decisions or speak for yourself.

Looking Ahead developed its My Wishes Workshop small-group advance care planning program in 2016 and since then has presented to hundreds of people in residential communities, church groups, clubs and social gatherings in the Central Bucks area and beyond.
