Senior Supper Jefferson Memorial Hospital will host the monthly Senior Sup- per Club dinner on Wednesday, April 20, at 5 p.m. in the hospital's first floor conference room. The monthly event includes a dinner and health speaker. This month's speakers will be an organ trans- plant recipient and a representative from Lifenet. The organ re- ceipt will share the story of their organ transplant. In addition, there will be a discussion about the importance of advance direc- tives. Advance Directives are documents which state your choic- es about medical treatment or name someone to make decisions about your medical treatment, if you are unable to make these decisions or choices yourself. They are called "advance directives" because they are signed in advance to let your doctor and other health care providers know your wishes concerning medical treat- ment. Advance Directives are legal documents that need to be no- tarized. West Virginia law recogninzes two types of advance direc- tives. Living Will: A living will is a document that tells your doctor or other health care providers whether or not you want life-prolong- ing treatments or procedures administered, to you if you are in ter- minal conditions or a persistent vegetative state. It is called a "liv- ing will" because it takes effect while you are still living. Medical Power of Attorney: A medical power of attorney is a le- gal document which allows you to appoint another person to-make medical decisions for you if you should become temporarily or per- manently unable to make those decisions for yourself. A living will and a medical power of attorney can be prepared in a combined advanced directive. The cost for the dinner is $6. For more information or to regis- ter, please call the Community Relations & Development Office at 728-2226.

The camp which is designed for children ages 7 to 13 provides a fun and educational experience for children who might not otherwise get to go to camp. "Jefferson Memorial Hospital and the Jefferson County Tuberculosis Foundation are proud to be able to support the Camp Catch Your Breath again this year," said Stephanie Dinant, Director of Cardiopulmonary and Neurodiagnostic Services. "We believe it is important to provide educa- tion and support to children who have asthma. The more an individual can learn about his or her condition, the better prepared they are to make decisions that will have a positive impact on their health." During the sessions, the children will learn by sharing their experiences, how to make decisions about their condition and express their feelings about having asthma. In addition to the education- al component, children will participate in games, sports, swimming and crafts. Campers will be supervised by staff from participating hospitals. A physician will be present at all times and emer- gency medical support will be readily available. The camp is for children with asthma, ages 7 to 13. Permission from your family physician is re- quired. The application fee is $60 per child (if your child is not selected for the program, your ap- plication fee will be refunded). A limited number of scholarships are available. The deadline for ap- plication is July 14. Attendance is limited to 70 children. For more information or an application, contact Stephanie Dinant at ~728-1~16. Call this Newspaper and ask for the advertising department or call 1-800-235-6881 for more information.
