5 Wishes Living Will Workshop
5 Wishes: A Five Wishes workshop takes you and your loved ones through the process of deciding on your wishes for end of life care. This topic can be sensitive, confusing and sometimes difficult but Five Wishes is here to help you through it. The 5 topics that will be covered are “My wish for”:
The person I want to make care decisions for me when I can’t.
The kind of medical treatment I want or don’t want.
How comfortable I want to be.
How I want people to treat me.
What I want my loved ones to know.
With the help of the American Bar Association Commission on Legal Problems of the Elderly, Five Wishes meets the legal requirements under the health decisions statutes. This program is free to members of the MMC and $15 for non-members who want to attend. You must sign up at Member Services to reserve your spot in the workshop. The next workshop is Thursday, June 6 from 10 to 11 a.m. in Activity Room #5.
Monthly Blood Pressure Clinics
Want to better manage your blood pressure? Want more than just a quick blood pressure screening? The MMC partners with Bayhealth to offer free monthly blood pressure clinics for members. A Bayhealth RN takes your blood pressure and assesses your vital signs and overall health (including breathing, weight and medications). Bayhealth keeps track of your assessment to monitor your blood pressure health each month. You also receive a wallet card to share this information with your doctor. The clinic runs from 9 to 11 (no appointment necessary) on the fourth Monday of each month. A Bayhealth representative is available in the Longwood Dining Room during those hours to assist you with registration. The next clinics are April 22 and June 24 (off for May).
