Choosing a substitute-decision maker
My Voice in Action is a Fraser Health fill in the blank booklet, which guides the reflective process of advance care planning. It acts as a record for initial Advance Care Planning thoughts and encourages further education and conversation.
Fraser Health’s Easy-read My Voice in Action is a fill in the blank, picture-based workbook for anyone who processes information differently. For example, people living with brain conditions such as Dementia, Huntington’s disease, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, or tumors; or impairments from health events such as aphasia from stroke or other limitations from brain injury; people living with disabilities; or people with limited English literacy (when translation is not available). Unique feature: the workbook includes guidance for caregivers and support people to help others through the process.
Greensleeves act as your health care passport and holds a list of your medications, substitute decision makers and any advance care planning documents. It’s a good idea to take it with you to all medical appointments and clinic or hospital visits.
