Advance Care Planning
What is Advance Care Planning
- Share your personal values and beliefs
- Explore how your values and beliefs affect your healthcare preferences in difficult medical situations
- Think about who among your loved ones can be your voice if you become very ill one day
Why it matters
If you become unable to speak for yourself one day, your loved ones will have peace of mind when they make healthcare decisions on your behalf.
Who it is for
Advance Care Planning is for everyone, regardless of age or state of health. Though you cannot predict the future, you can prepare for the unexpected by letting your family know what kind of care you would like to receive should you become very ill one day.
