GARY | Smith Bizzell & Warner Funeral Home, along with Hospice of the Calumet Area and Spring Mill Health Campus, is sponsoring National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16. The free program will be held beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Spring Mill Health Campus, 101 West 87th Ave., in Merrillville.

NHDD provides free information and tools for individuals 18 and over to talk about their wishes and execute advance directives (healthcare power of attorney and living will) in accordance with Indiana and Illinois state laws.

Hospice of the Calumet Area staff will explain the goals and details of advance directives and help interested attendees complete their own advance directives. In addition, a Smith Bizzell & Warner Funeral Home professional will present information about end-of-life planning.

Although this presentation is offered free of charge, those interested in taking part in this event should RSVP to (219) 922-2732 or (708) 895-8332 for purposes of refreshments.
