PAPP has screened volunteers to assist members of the public with completion of documents for Health & Personal Advance Care Planning and for Financial & Legal Advance Care Planning. The volunteers will meet with you to assist with your personal planning and can review the resources available to help you make your best choices.

These services are available in Nelson, Salmo, Slocan Valley, Balfour/Procter, & the East Shore. Please phone for a confidential appointment to the Nelson & District Seniors Coordinating Society at (250) 352-6008 and identify which community you would like to have the volunteer assist you.

Do You Need More Information on Personal Planning, Including Representation Agreements and Powers of Attorney? Nidus BC has very informative and easily understood webinars to help take the mystery out of these essential planning tools. Go to and select “What’s new?” on the right-side menu bar for a list of dates and how to register.
