National Healthcare Decisions Day

Lower Cape Fear Hospice has a goal to give away 5,000 free advance directive planning packets for National Healthcare Decision Day on April 16.

LCFH will give away free kits containing information about advance directives, a Begin the Conversation toolkit, and resources to get free state-recognized advance care planning documents like Heathcare Power of Attorney and Living Will forms.

There will be several distribution sites in Columbus County from 9am-11am.  They include McDonald's, 1110 N JK Powell Blvd, Walgreens, 803 N JK Powell Blvd, and Columbus Regional Hospital.

For information about the distribution sites and times, visit or contact Jason Clamme at 910-796-7943.
