Learn to prepare your health care directive at Poy Sippi Library on May 30

Jennifer Koeppl of Koeppl Law Offices, Wild Rose, will be presenting information to assist individuals in completing their Health Care Power of Attorney form at the Poy Sippi Public Library from 2 – 3 PM on Wednesday, May 30. During this interactive presentation, she will go through the Wisconsin Health Care Power of Attorney form, answer questions and assist attendees with the completion of the form.  Items which will be discussed are which boxes to check for specific agent authority and why, as well as providing instructions for family members regarding end of life care.  Says Attorney Koeppl, “Many do not realize that in Wisconsin, next of kin does not have legal authority to make health care decisions for loved ones in the event of an incapacity or inability to communicate.   Many individuals and family members find this out when it is too late and there is a crisis with a loved one.”  The Poy Sippi Library is located at W2251 Commercial Street, Poy Sippi. This event is free and open to the public.  For more information contact the Director at 920-787-573.
