SEQUIM — Nurse Sandra L. Ulf will offer “Who will speak for you, if you can’t speak for yourself,” a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum set for 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.
Seating is limited so organizers urge attendees to arrive early for this discussion of advance care plans.
An advance care plan features two main elements: it designates who patients trust to be medical decision-makers when they are incapacitated, and it clarifies their wishes for how medical care, including life-sustaining treatment, should proceed when they are unable to communicate.
Ulf has been a registered nurse since 1976 and worked in several areas of health care including inpatient, outpatient, home care and hospice. She said she has always been passionate about patients being knowledgeable about health issues and the choices available to them, particularly at the end of life.
WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health Wellness Clinic. The clinic provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members.
The clinic’s work is supported by more than 70 volunteers, including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.
The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic should call 360-582-0218.
