Description

It is never too early to have a conversation with loved ones about what you would and would not want in the event of a serious accident or illness and who you want to act as your healthcare agent—but it can be too late. Advance Care Planning gives you the chance to have a conversation about your specific preferences, values and what quality of life means to you. This conversation can also reduce stress on your loved ones and allow them to feel that they are honoring your wishes (instead of guessing about what you would want or not want) if such a difficult situation ever occurs.

Led by trained healthcare professionals, participants are encouraged to explore and identify their goals and values, particularly around decision making. This information is then used to help participants understand the three decisions in advance care planning—identifying a healthcare decision maker; identifying cultural, religious, personal or spiritual beliefs that may impact the participants’ decisions; and determining what healthcare the participant would want in the event of a sudden illness or injury.

If you have already chosen a health care agent, we encourage you to add them to your registration if they are able to attend with you.
