While your college course catalog probably didn't have offerings like "New and Old Roses for North Florida Gardens" or "Golf in Nature: A Transformative Experience?" you can find those titles in the catalog for the University of North Florida's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).
OLLI seeks to connect later-life adults with new skills and experiences relevant to their lives as they reach the end of careers and maintain a desire to learn new things.
Community Hospice of Northeast Florida is part of this year's suite of OLLI classes, too, offering an invaluable course about our Honoring Choices® Florida advance care planning program. This one-day course, led by Community Hospice Director of Advance Care Planning Jamie Buller, will help adults 50 and older understand exactly what advance care planning is and the implications it can have for them and their loved ones in the event of a health crisis.
Honoring Choices Florida is unique in its facilitated conversation model that helps people discuss, decide and document their wishes for care if they are unable to speak for themselves.
As one of Community Hospice's Foundation-supported programs, it represents an important investment in quality of life at the end of life as a population health management tool that reduces the long-term cost of care for everyone.
As part of Community Hospice's ongoing efforts to build community partnerships and educate the public about the importance of advance care planning, this course provides a convenient opportunity to get questions answered and "simplify the management of your future health care."
The class will be Monday, March 7, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the UNF Herbert University Center.
