BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro Area Hospice's Taking Steps Brattleboro Program will host a three-day Advance Care Planning facilitator/volunteer training program on May 2, 16, and 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on all three Saturdays.

The training is offered to anyone who would like to learn how to assist people in completing and registering their Advance Directive. Advance Care Planning ensures that a person's loved ones and health professionals know what a person wants in case of a medical emergency or illness when a person cannot speak for her/his self.

Taking Steps Brattleboro is a program that provides trained facilitators to help people understand the ACP process, map out individual steps and assist people in completing this vital task. The training will be held at Brattleboro Area Hospice, 191 Canal St. Applications are due by Monday, April 6.
