North Carolina Hospice Offers Advice On Creating Living Wills

Concord, North Carolina's First Missionary Baptist Church and Hospice & Palliative Care of Cabarrus County are reportedly teaming up to host information sessions on creating living wills and other advanced planning advice, the Salisbury Post reports.

On March 16, the organizations will reportedly host two workshops specifically geared towards those planning to write a living will, according to the news provider. The first information session will run from noon to 2:00 p.m., while the second will take place from 6:45 to 8:00 p.m. in the church's multipurpose center.

Ric Durham, spiritual care director of Hospice & Palliative Care of Cabarrus County, will reportedly lead the workshops, which are open to anyone interested in receiving living will information, the news source said.

According to the Mayo Clinic, living wills are designed to "describe your preferences regarding treatment if you're faced with a serious accident or illness. These legal documents speak for you when you're not able to speak for yourself — for instance, if you're in a coma."
