On Sunday, Aug. 8, Yorkville Congregational United Church of Christ will welcome the Rev. Daniel J. Sullivan, chaplain/director of Spiritual Care at Rush Copley Medical Center during the 10 a.m. worship service. Rev. Sullivan will discuss the meaning and importance of advance directives.
Sullivan serves Rush Copley as co-chairperson of the Medical Ethics Committee, a member of the Rush Copley Institutional Review Board, a lecturer for the Family Practice Residency Program and past coordinator of emergency preparedness.
An advance directive is defined as a legal document signed by a person to provide guidance for medical and health care decisions in the event the person becomes unable to communicate or make such decisions.
Sullivan will address the importance of an advance directive, the tools available to assist in communicating wishes for the future and how to appoint a decision-maker to speak for you, should you become unable to speak for yourself because of illness or injury.
All are invited to the worship service and the information/discussion session to follow. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at YCUCC, 409 Center Parkway in Yorkville.
