For Immediate Release
September 3, 2013
What's on Your Bucket List?
Everyone has a ďbucket listĒ
--- things you want to do before you die.
Some are short; others long. But have you ever stopped
to think about the things you need to do to make
sure you are cared for the way you would like should you
become seriously ill?
Accidents and medical
emergencies can happen in an instance. If you are not
prepared, your medical care decisions may be made by
doctors who donít know what you want or family members
unable to handle decisions at that moment. Itís
important that you have your wishes documented so they
can be carried out. You donít need an attorney to do
this. There is free material and assistance available
to help you create the documents needed.
Dorchester County Library is
partnering with Lutheran Hospice to present the 5
Wishes program they offer to help individuals create
the documents needed to ensure your medical care is
handled as you want.
The 5 Wishes program
will be held at the McMahan Library in St George,
Thursday, September 12th at 6 pm. Individuals are
asked to register in advance so the Hospice
representative will know the number of workbooks
needed. All materials provided are free. Light
refreshment will be served. For more information or to
register, call the library at 563-9189.
