HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It may not be the most comfortable subject to talk about, but it is important, and that's why Sunrise invited Dr. Carolin Hubbard to the show to talk about setting up healthcare wishes early on in order to be prepared later in life before it is too late.
Dr. Hubbard exhibits some of the forms many should fill out early on in order to dictate what happens to them at the end of life in cases of situations like being on life support or taking pain medication. Although the topic of discussion may be uncomfortable it is imperative your loved ones are aware of your wishes, and they know who has the right to do what in times of emergency when you yourself would not be able to act on your own behalf.
This type of information will be further presented and explained at the multiple End-of-Life Care, Take Control: You Call the Shots Seminars starting tomorrow. The list of dates, times and locations is as follows:
Sept 3: 11:15 a.m. Leeward YMCA
Sept. 5: 12:45 p.m. Waialae YMCA
Sept. 8: 10 a.m. Waipio Clinic
Sept. 11: 12:15 p.m. Windward YMCA
Sept. 17: 9:00 a.m. Nuuanu YMCA
