Blue Hill Public Library
In recognition of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, the Blue Hill Public Library and Healthy Peninsula’s Choices That Matter project will cosponsor an informational fair at the library on Saturday, November 10th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and a drop-in clinic to help folks with advance care planning documents from 10:00 AM to noon. The fair will offer local resources for patients, families, and their loved ones, with special attention to the importance of completing advance directives for peace of mind for all involved.
Participating groups include: Eastern Area Agency on Aging, Friends in Action, Friendship Cottage, Home Instead, Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County, Northern Light Home Health & Hospice, and Parker Ridge, in addition to Choices That Matter. This will be a great opportunity for professional networking and for caregivers and families of those affected with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
From 10:00 AM to noon, retired local M.D. Susan Ostertag, retired clinical psychologist Barbara Sinclair, and trained facilitator Charles Guilford will be available on a drop-in basis at the library for help with filling out advance care directives and other paperwork relating to end-of-life healthcare wishes. Questions as broad as “How do I know what I want?” or as narrow as “What do I put on this line of this form?” will be addressed one-on-one for anyone who needs help.
There is no change for these events and everyone is welcome. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
