Asheboro, NC – According to Pew Research Center’s 2006 study, 71% of Americans have thought about their end-of-life treatment preferences but only 29% of Americans have documented their preferences by completing a Living Will. To assist with this important need, a group of students from Elon University School of Law will be providing FREE services for Hospice of Randolph County to provide an Advance Directives Clinic on Saturday morning, September 26th . The Advance Directives Clinic will take place at Hospice of Randolph County (416 Vision Drive, Asheboro, NC) with hourly sessions at 9am, 10am and 11am. During the hourly sessions, attendees will receive free assistance with the completion of Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney NC Statuary Forms. No legal service, legal advice or customizable forms will be offered. To help with the process, it is suggested that you bring your license or photo ID, address and phone numbers for individuals desired to be your assigned agents, contact information for son/ daughter or spouse and primary Physician’s name, address and phone number if you have one. These services are free but since availability is limited, pre-registration is required. To register, please contact Hospice of Randolph County at (336) 672-9300.
