Friends of the James River Valley Library System held the first in a series of programs on planning for end of life on October 8th. The initial class was taught by Tracy Johnk from Jamestown Regional Medical Center and Gary Riffe, retired administrator from Hi-Acres, now Eventide. They brought a wealth of knowledge on how to prepare for the final days of life. They offered advice on the important discussions that need to take place for treatment and end of life wishes, the importance of a Long Term Care Policy, living wills and appointment of an agent.
Thanks to Tracy and Gary! And thanks to library staff for set up assistance. More classes to come. Watch for “How to E-Mail” in November, presented by computer guru Justin Batz.
