Private Consultation

Fern Baudo Adult Health Nurse Practitioner PC provides Advance Care Planning consultations for private clients.

Private consultations include a three-part conversation.

Session 1: Baudo provides Advance Care Planning facilitation. She explores the client’s values, wishes and choices. Baudo discusses with the client the role of the health care agent, and assists the client in choosing the right health care agent.

Session 2: Includes a meeting with the identified health care agent and alternative health care agent. Baudo facilitates the conversation between the client, the chosen health care agent and alternative health care agent to discuss the client’s choices and explain the health care agent duties.

Session 3: Incorporates a discussion facilitated between client, family, and loved ones so that everyone that potentially may be involved in this person’s care has an understanding of the client’s choices.

Speaking Engagements

Baudo may be hired by the health care agent and alternative agent to act as a translator during a time where the agents are called to step in to make decisions for the client.
