LACONIA — A discussion on durable — or medical — powers of attorney in New Hampshire will take place this coming Monday at 6 p.m. at St. Francis Healthcare at 406 Court St.
The session will examine the implications of these documents from a both a legal and personal conscience perspective.
A medical power of attorney allows people to appoint a person to make healthcare decisions on their behalf in case they are unable to speak for themselves. The document serves as a record of one's medical preferences.
The session will take place in the St. Francis lobby area.
