Advance Care Planning
At Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D., we are committed to delivering patient-centered care because it improves our patients’ satisfaction and quality of life. As part of the commitment, we offer advance care planning services in Fargo, N.D.
Advance care planning is making decisions about the care you would want to receive if you happen to become unable to speak for yourself. These are your decisions to make, regardless of what you choose for your care, and the decisions are based on your personal values, preferences, and discussions with your loved ones.
If you communicate your health care wishes, our Sanford team can provide medical care that matches your values and goals. In addition, your family members will not be forced to make decisions in a crisis with no guidance or direction.
Certified advance care planning facilitators in Fargo, N.D., are available to have discussions with patients at different stages of health and in locations throughout our Sanford Health system. These facilitators assist patients and families with making informed decisions in a timely manner to ensure care that is delivered is consistent with a patient’s goals, values and beliefs.
