Plan for your best option

If you were unable to communicate your health care choices to doctors, who would speak on your behalf? Would they know and make the same decisions you would make for yourself?


National Advance Care Planning Week, from 1 - 5 April, is a good time to think about your values and beliefs, talk with your family about your future health care wishes, and make these choices known.


It is often difficult to start conversations with loved ones about what living well means to you and to consider who would make a good decision-maker if you were too sick to speak for yourself.


Use this link to learn more about how to complete an Advanced Care Plan and to access the forms and processes to help you lodge your plan.
