Gerber Memorial’s free March seminar to focus on preparing families for healthcare wishes
FREMONT. Mich., March 3, 2021 – Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial’s free monthly Healthy Minds, Health Bodies seminar for March shines a spotlight educating people about expressing their healthcare wishes through preemptive planning, also known as advanced care planning sessions. The virtual seminar is on Thursday, March 11, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
With advanced care planning, individuals are better prepared to tell loved ones and health care providers what they want for their future health care needs. Advance care planning is important for people of all ages because anything can happen to anyone at any time like an accident or a stroke. Having a plan in place can help ensure that health care wishes can be known and honored in any situation.
Presenters at the March 11 seminar are Jen Eriks and Rena Ruehle, Spectrum Health senior improvements specialists, who will review the Advance Care Planning process. Eriks and Ruehle will help participants reflect on goals and values and help identify ways to make plans about current and future health care. The seminar is open to all community members.
