Do you wonder if you should have a living will? Have you thought about creating a trust for your children? If one of your older loved ones were ill, would you know his or her treatment preferences? Does your family know your wishes if you were ever unable to advocate for yourself legally or medically? These important questions can have significant impact on the lives of you and your family. The best ways to make sure that your wishes (and your loved ones’ wishes) are followed are through heart-to-heart conversations and having the appropriate legal documents in order. Following this seminar, participants will be better able to: • Understand the legal tools available • Discuss these legal matters with their loved ones • Access information on relevant local and state laws Presenter: Facilitator from Humana/HRI (Columbia University’s Employee Assistance Program)
