Health Care Proxy And Living Will

Girish Mehta
04/15/2021

Avoid difficult situations that are so common when we become seriously ill and our loved ones are left to guess what we would have wanted. 

National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) – on April 16th every year – is a nationwide initiative that encourages adults of all ages to plan ahead of a health crisis. When we make health decisions ahead of time and put those wishes in writing, we bring peace of mind to our families. We enable our caregivers to advocate for us when we are unable to do so for ourselves.  

Indian Circle for Caring USA Inc. (ICC) is pleased to announce a series of workshops  from April 16th to April 18th to help you learn and prepare your own “Health Care Proxy and Living Will”. You can select a workshop date and  time most  convenient for you and your family.  

During this workshop, you will learn about “Health Care Proxy and Living Will”, also known as “Advanced Health Directive” and prepare this important legal document (non-financial) at no cost to you and without further delay. It will be a “Do it Yourself” (D.I.Y.), confidential and without any legal fees project.  

Everyone above the age of 18 should have one created for themselves. Have a peace of mind and do not be caught unprepared. Please take advantage of the unique opportunity, register and attend. This is a free 90 minute workshop (including Q&A) as a service to the community. 

Learn why you need to create your own “Health Care Proxy and Living Will”, prepare this important legal document at no cost!
