Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is thinking ahead about the type of medical and healthcare decisions you would want made for you in the future, especially if you are seriously ill.

What would happen to you if an illness or an accident caused you to be unable to speak? Sharing healthcare wishes with loved ones is a valuable gift to those closest to you.

There are just 3 key steps for Advance Care Planning:
