Advance Care Planning

Make Your Wishes Known

Make health care decisions now in case you can’t later.

End-of-life planning is not an easy topic to talk about. We don’t want to die, but we also don’t want to suffer. To make an advance care plan, think about what kind of health care you’d want if you could not talk or write.

Advance care planning helps you:

  • Think about and discuss treatment options with your family and health care providers
  • Make treatment decisions based on your goals and values
  • Select someone you can trust to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so
  • Document and communicate your decisions to those who need to know

Advance care planning is about sharing your wishes and what matters to you. We’ll walk you through how to create your advance care plan and health care directive. It’s important to express what you wish clearly and directly to those who will make health care decisions on your behalf.
