BRATTLEBORO, Vt. – On Saturday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Brattleboro Area Hospice’s Taking Steps Brattleboro Program will host a two-day ACP facilitator and volunteer training. The two-day training will be held at Brattleboro Area Hospice, 191 Canal St., Brattleboro, Vt. Applications are due by Monday, Sept. 16, 2019.
The training is offered to anyone 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 case of a medical emergency or illness when a person cannot communicate.
Taking Steps Brattleboro is a free service that provides trained volunteer facilitators to help people understand the ACP process, map out individual steps, and assist people in completing this vital task.
Brattleboro Area Hospice is an independent, nonprofit organization that provides non-medical support to dying and grieving community members and volunteer-staffed assistance with Advance Care Planning.
