Story

Plan now for health care situations. Make them less of an emergency than they could be.

Join Jenny Ruemmele and Rae Ann McKeating, Honoring Choices Facilitators and community members, to learn about the importance of having an Advance Health Care Plan in place and sharing your preferences with those you love. The discussion will review the importance of selecting and communicating with your designated health care agent. The presentation will also review Advance Health Care forms and how simple they are to complete. Advance Health Care Planning is important for any individual over the age of 18 and can reduce stress for families if there is a situation where the patient is not able to speak for themselves and important health decisions need to be made.

Why do we all need an Advance Health Care Plan?

  • We can’t plan for everything, but we can talk about what is important to us in our life and our health care
  • We can’t predict the future
  • Covid-19 and unexpected accidents have shown us that we need someone to advocate and speak for us if we aren’t able to do so

Jenny Ruemmele is Director of the St. Luke’s McCall Foundation.

An Honoring Choices Facilitator and passionate about end-of-life issues, Rae Ann McKeating is working on the second edition of her book, Caring for My Mom with Love, Laughter, and Tears.

Both Jenny and Rae are Advanced Care Facilitators with the St. Luke’s McCall Foundation Board.

    Registration means you receive the Zoom link day of the session--it does not add you to an email list, unless we have your permission.

    Donations gratefully accepted to support programming, shared resources, and community-building at Community Hub McCall.

    This conversation is part of our winter series, Looking Ahead, Conversations on Aging and Dying. With support from St. Luke’s McCall Foundation Board, the Idaho Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    Private Advance Care Planning Sessions are available:

    • Have The Conversation with your family.
    • Identify the medical forms to complete now.
    • Learn the questions to be asking we don’t know about.

      St. Luke's provides this free service. Have a private call with a trained facilitator who takes you through the medical forms and answers questions. Do it alone or with your spouse, parents, children, or siblings.
