Club will meet in person in Clubhouse 3, Room 2
The Sunshine Club’s meetings are back in Clubhouse 3 Room 2, at 10 a.m. on Fridays. There will be no more meetings held via Zoom. Everyone is welcome to join the meeting; face masks are not mandatory but strongly recommended. Patty Barnett-Mouton from Alzheimer’s Orange County is the speaker on April 8. The title of her talk is “You Won’t Always Get What You Want!” Barnett-Mouton will talk about people planning ahead for endof- life care.
Have you talked with your loved ones about your thoughts and wishes for care should you become seriously ill? Do you know what levels of care you would find acceptable?
Barnett-Mouton will lead an interactive program to explore ways LWers can broach this sometimes difficult subject with their loved ones, what paperwork is essential, and how to help family members understand their wishes.
Barnett-Mouton serves as co-chair of the OC Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) Coalition and director of the Community Education program for Advance Care Planning at Hoag Hospital Palliative Care, and she has been vice president of outreach and advocacy at Alzheimer’s OC for over 16 years.
