Advance Care Planning

Bookmark and Share

No one knows what the future holds. A health crisis may affect you or someone you love at any time.

Advance care planning helps you have a say about the health care you would like to receive if you get very sick and cannot speak for yourself. It is a way for you to reflect on your personal values, wishes and beliefs to make your own future health care decisions.

By documenting these choices, your doctor and family members won’t have to guess what you would want if you are unable to communicate.
