Give yourself and your loved-ones some precious gifts:

  • Plan what medical care you wish if you become seriously ill or
    injured.
  • Choose and inform someone to speak for you should injury or
    illness prevent you from speaking for yourself.
  • Communicate:
    – which goals make your life most meaningful to you
    – what would be worse than death to you
  • Document and share these decisions with your loved ones and
    medical caregivers.

This presentation will cover:

  • What is Advance Care Planning?
  • Why is it hard to do? Why do people avoid doing it?
  • When should Advance Care Planning be done?
  • What important decisions should be made, shared in conversations,
    and documented in writing?
