Advance Care Planning

Why Advance Care Planning?

Making decisions about medical care is not always easy - especially now that machines can keep patients alive even when there is no hope for recovery. It's your right to participate in and plan for your care. But at some point, you may become unable to make your own health care decisions. That's why it's important to think and talk about your feelings and beliefs with your loved ones -- long before critical decisions must be made.
