04/16/16 – National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD)


Saturday, April 16, 2016

National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) is a national day set aside each year to encourage individuals age 18 and older to have family discussions about personal values and beliefs, to choose a health care agent, and to complete a health care proxy.

WELC participates in this effort by distributing NYS Health Care Proxy forms and placing trained volunteers in Westchester public libraries on April 16.

For information and to register for volunteer training:
     email NHDD2016@westchesterendoflife.org
     call 914-330-4285


Volunteers learn about the value of advance directives and a health care proxy.  They are trained to help others understand and complete a health care proxy form, and to make informed decisions about health care planning.
