Training offered for Advance Care Planning volunteers


BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro Area Hospice's Taking Steps Brattleboro (Advance Care Planning/Advance Directive) will host a two day Facilitator training for people 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 a medical emergency or illness when the person is unable to speak for her or himself.

Taking Steps Brattleboro is a program that provides trained volunteers to help people understand the process to complete an

Advance Directive, map out individual steps and assist a person in completing this vital task.

The training will take place on two Saturdays, March 16 and March 30, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

For more information about this training and to schedule an interview with the Program Coordinator, call 802-257-0775, ext 101.

Brattleboro Area Hospice, located at 191 Canal St., is an independent, non-profit organization that provides non-medical support to dying and grieving community members and volunteer-staffed assistance with Advance Care Planning.
