The Surry County Senior Center will sponsor a free workshop on advance directors, with attorney B. Bailey Liipfert III, on Wednesday from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Senior Center.
The workshop will show adults how they can leave advance directives for what should be done if they are incapacitated and not able to speak for themselves regarding medical and legal issues.
The workshop will focus on the importance of leaving a healthcare power of attorney, a living will, durable power of attorney, and medical orders for scope of treatment.
While the seminar is free, those planning to attend are asked to call the Senior Center, in advance, at 786-6155, extension 225.
