Pie in the Park was our August focus. Thanks to everyone who baked, ate, bought and served pie — and ice cream.
Search as I might, I couldn’t find an Aging Matters column on advance directives, though it seemed there had been one. The topic is a natural continuation of June’s column on powers of attorney. What it is: An advance directive provides instructions about future medical care in the event one becomes incapable of stating one’s own wishes.
