The Princeton Senior Resource Center (PSRC) is pleased that Medicare has decided to cover people’s conversations with their physicians on healthcare decision-making. PSRC is participating in “Conversations of a Lifetime,” which aims to bring advanced care planning conversations to New Jersey communities.
Princeton was selected by New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute as one of three communities to pilot this initiative. PSRC staff are leading workshops to help people complete healthcare directives, facilitating a group called “Conversations on Being Mortal,” and assisting individuals with their questions. These programs will help people prepare for having these important conversations with doctors and family so they can confidently know how to make decisions when they are unable to do so which are consistent with their wishes.
