What if a sudden illness or injury left you unable to speak for yourself?
Who would you want to speak for you?
What would you want them to know about your goals, values, and preferences?
Advance care planning is a process that helps you:
- think about your healthcare goals, values, and preferences;
- consider healthcare choices you may have to make in the future;
- talk about your choices with your doctor, your healthcare agent, and other loved ones; and
- make a written plan for the future (advance directive).
Join us in thought-provoking conversation to help make your preferences known. Learn vocabulary, reflect on your goals and values, choose a healthcare agent, explore goals for treatment, and take the first steps toward completing an advance directive.
Following the discussion, you will have the opportunity to make an appointment with a Facilitator who can help guide you through the process of completing an advance directive.
