About the Event
Being designated someone's health care agent is not a small thing- it can be a big responsiblity and honor at the same time. Choosing one can be harder than you think. Your HCA is the guardian and protector of your values and wishes, your voice, when you can't speak for yourself. If you were to dream up your ideal Health Care Agent (HCA, or health care proxy, or durable power of attorney for health care), what traits would they have? Strength? Ferocity? A warrior mentality? Empathy? Gentleness? Wisdom? What traits would they ideally NOT exhibit? Truly exploring the role of HCA means the 'obvious' person in your life may not actually be the best fit. What can you do if you can't find the ideal candidate, or the ideal fit doesn't agree to it? We explore the role, the ideals, the realities, and the possibility together a (not legally-binding) team of people to support you and your choices when you can't speak for yourself.
