It is easy to make sure your loved ones know your wishes.
Advance care planning is sharing decisions about the healthcare you would want to receive if you are faced with a medical crisis. These are decisions to make based on your personal values, preferences, and discussions with your loved ones.
Advance care planning includes:
- Sharing your personal values with your loved ones
- Deciding what type of treatment you would want, or would not want, should you be faced with a medical crisis
- Electing an advocate to speak for you if you become unable to speak for yourself
- Completing and sharing the appropriate documentation or advance directive
