HONORING CHOICES/ICE CREAM SOCIAL
Day: Wednesday • Date: August 15 • Time: 1:00 PM
Leader: Randy Cumming • Cost: Free • Pre-Registration Required
Honoring Choices Massachusetts is a consumer focused non-profit organization supporting the right of every adult to direct their health
care choices. They inform & empower adults, 18 years old and older, to make a health care plan to receive the best possible care that honors their
choices, all through their lives. Every competent adult can make a health care plan and direct their care choices, starting at 18 years old and
continuing all through your life. Your plan is your personal road map which tells your family and doctors what's important to you and the kind of care
you want. Honoring Choices provides do-it-yourself tools to help you and your loved ones make a plan for the best possible care today and every
day. Northborough Senior Center has become a community partner of Honoring Choices to bring this discussion to the Senior Center.
Next month, we will have a presentation about Honoring Choices and will provide you with the necessary paperwork so that you can make
your plan. Please call the Senior Center at 508-393-5035 to reserve your seat to learn more about this important information.
