Lucy Holding was recently announced as the winner of the Granville-Vance Home Health Agency’s Make Your Healthcare Wishes Known contest.

A regular at the South Granville Senior Center, Holding was inspired to complete a Five Wishes living will and healthcare power of attorney after attending an educational session on advance care planning at the center held by the staff of Granville-Vance Home Health Agency. As her prize, she received a $100 Food Lion gift card.

The presentation was one of four the agency offered in Vance and Granville counties in observance of National Healthcare Decisions Day in April.

The sessions focused on the Five Wishes living will and healthcare power of attorney, which addresses personal, emotional, spiritual and medical wishes. Once completed, witnessed and notarized, it is a legal document in North Carolina and 41 other states.
