Health Care Planning Ambassadors engage adults, 18 years old & older, in powerful health care planning discussions using the Honoring Choices MA “Getting Started Tool Kit”. Over 100 Ambassadors, who are seniors, community volunteers and professional staff, recently attended statewide Ambassador Workshops to enhance their health care planning knowledge and skills to confidentially help adults complete a Health Care Proxy and Personal Directive (Living Will). Ambassadors started person-to-person discussions, and hosted fun & informational “Pizza & Proxy” events in their community.
The Ambassador Pizza & Proxy events were a big success. Adults & families came together to share pizza while Ambassadors provided a step-by-step slide presentation and free planning documents. Many adults & families were delighted to complete their documents during the event.
This Fall, the Ambassadors are celebrating the season by adding two additional events:
- “Pie & Proxy”. Share a slice of Apple Pie (or your favorites) and receive a free Health Care Proxy & Personal Directive;
- “Pancakes & Proxy“. For Saturday & Sunday events and faith-based fellowship, add a Pancake Breakfast to your fall calendar and provide all adults with planning documents.
Honoring Choices supports our Health Care Planning Ambassadors with everything they need to host an event including a newsletter announcement, posters, a slide presentation and downloadable tool kits and more.
