Conversation Ready: How to Discuss Your Medical Care Wishes

Milford Regional Medical Center’s Patient and Family Advisory Council will host a panel discussion on how to ensure your wishes for medical care are met and respected in a healthcare crisis on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Physicians Conference Center.

The panel will include Richard Daly, MD, vice president of medical staff at Milford Regional and a local primary care physician; Fr. Thomas Landry, chaplain at Milford Regional; Christa Branigan, MSW, LICSW, Milford Regional social worker; Corine Minkle, PFAC community member; Arthur Bergeron, attorney; and Kimberly Morse, Milford Regional palliative care physician assistant.

Whether you are 18 or 99, it’s never too early or too late to discuss your wishes for medical care should you face a health crisis. The panel discussion will include advice on how to have the conversation with family and friends, how to talk about your wishes to be sure they are respected, the importance of having a health care proxy and how to prevent you and your family from incurring unnecessary costs.

The event is free, but registration is encouraged. To register, contact Ana Guilarducci, community health worker, at (508) 422-2480.
