Caregivers talk end-of-life health care

04.21.2021

CHICO, Calif., April 21, 2021 — More than 80% of people say it’s important to put their end-of-life health care wishes into writing, and yet according to the California Health Care Foundation, only 23% have actually done so.

To help community members take a step toward crossing this important task off their to-do list, Enloe Medical Center will discuss Advance Health Care Directives on Facebook on April 29 at noon.

Enloe’s Cancer Support Program Coordinator Rebecca Senoglu and Hospice Outreach Coordinator Sandy Koshell-Galka will go over what people should consider, how to talk to their family about their health care wishes, helpful resources, and more.

“Anyone at any age can suffer from an unexpected accident or illness and become unable to speak for themselves,” Senoglu said. “Many of us know we should make our health care wishes known but talking about it and knowing where to begin can be tough. We hope to give people information to confidently start specifying their wishes to ensure they receive the treatment they would want and take the pressure off their loved ones.”

To watch the broadcast, visit Enloe’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/enloe.medical and tune in on April 29 at noon. Viewers can post their questions in the broadcast’s Comments field. Once the discussion concludes, a recording will be available on the medical center’s Facebook page in the “Videos” section and on Enloe’s YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/user/EnloeMedicalCtr.

Please note that some of Enloe’s Facebook discussions are recorded and broadcast on Facebook at a later date for quality assurance purposes. Comments and questions are addressed in real time during the broadcast.
