Pointe Coupee Homebound Health and Hospice will be hosting a free “Five Wishes” workshop. PCHHH is hosting this workshop because we understand planning for the future involves more than pension benefits or life and health insurance. We realize many of you are facing important decisions about medical care, especially with aging or ill family members, and that is why we wanted to make “Five Wishes” available to you.
