healthcare directives The health care power of attorney (.pdf) allows you to grant to the attorney in fact the authority to make decisions regarding the use of life sustaining procedures. Because of this, it has been said that the execution of a living will (.pdf) memorializes your intent and desire regarding your use of life-sustaining procedures, and not what your attorney in fact thinks you desire. The presence of a living will relieves the attorney in fact from making that difficult decision, if the situation arises.
tobacco cessation We know it’s difficult to quit tobacco products. Tobacco cessation medications are covered under the County’s group health plan.  As with other medications, you only pay a co-pay.  If you're interested in smoking cessation classes, the Human Resources department can schedule you for individual or group classes through Genesis Health Care.  The County will cover the cost of the classes.   Quit today!
senior health care As you prepare for retirement you’ll need additional information about your health care and insurance needs.
