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 helps bring peace of mind to you and those who may be making your decisions.
