Deb Korfage-Amborn of Halifax Health – Hospice will share information about the Five Wishes living will program at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 9, at the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway.

A living will, also known as an advance directive, is a legal document individuals complete to make known their wishes regarding life-prolonging medical treatments.

The Five Wishes living will has been described as a “living will with a heart and soul.” It allows people to detail:

  • Who they want to make health care decisions for them when they become incapacitated
  • The kind of medical treatment they want or don't want
  • How comfortable they want to be
  • How they want to be treated
  • What they want their loved ones to know

The Five Wishes living will meets the legal requirements for an advance directive in 42 states including Florida. For more information about Five Wishes, visit www.fivewishes.org.

Registration is not required for this free program. For more information, call the library at 386-424-2910, option 4.
