November is National Caregiver Month and in recognition and support of all the hard work and dedication that goes into caring for a loved one, we want to invite our HLOKC caregivers to our first annual Caregiver Forum on Tuesday, November 19, from 9:30am-1:30pm. If you are caring for a parent, child, friend or neighbor, you won’t want to miss this forum.
Administrative Law Judge, Shirley A. Cox, MSW, JD, will be covering Legal Issues in Healthcare for Older Oklahomans with the goal of familiarizing caregivers with relevant Oklahoma laws related to health care decisions, including the Oklahoma Advance Directive Act, Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, Do Not Resuscitate Act, and the Hierarchy of Surrogacy Decision-making.
We will also have a Resource and Caregiver Panel on hand to answer your questions. Lunch will be provided, and everyone will leave with a packet of helpful information. This is a free event, but registration by Nov 16 is required.
To be included in the forum, please sign-up at the Information Table.
