The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop a workshop for Medicare eligible recipients to better understand how the Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD) help in making end-of-life decisions. Specifically, the workshop targeted cognitively sound older adults to participate in a four week program to learn about their legal right in making their end-of-life decisions formally stated and appointing a health care proxy who would help execute those decisions when needed. Understanding the historical evolvement of the AHCD and meeting professionals in the health care field who work with end-of-life patients and their families will be an integral part of the workshop. The submission and or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
