How to Prepare for “Back to School” During a Pandemic
As students and teachers head back to school, a lot feels different this year. Millions of students in every region of the country are either learning remotely, or cautiously heading back into the classroom. Millions of teachers are grappling with how to deliver a rewarding educational experience from a physical distance or figuring out how to facilitate in-person instruction while prioritizing the health and safety of their students, their families, and themselves.
In this moment of sustained uncertainty, outlining our healthcare wishes has never been more important. Advance care planning is one place you can start and gain critical peace of mind at this challenging time. Children and adults alike can benefit from an advance care plan that puts you in control of your medical decisions in an urgent moment. An advance care plan allows you to designate a health proxy to serve as your voice in an emergency medical situation when you, or your child, is unable to speak on their own.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how fragile our health can be. By uploading, updating or creating your advance care plan today, you can provide yourself and your family with the security that can only come with planning for any health emergency. So sharpen your pencils, teach your lessons, and consider setting up an advance care plan for yourself, and your loved ones of any generation
