Heather Campbell, RN wants to share that April 16th is National Advance Care Planning Day, a day for you to think about and share your wishes for future health care with others. If you’ve already had a conversation with your Substitute Decision Maker, April 16th is a great day to review your wishes and talk again.
Advance Care Planning is a process of reflecting on your values and wishes, and letting others know what kind of health and personal care you would want if you were unable to speak for yourself.
It means having discussions with family and friends, especially your Substitute Decision Maker – the person who will speak for you if you cannot speak for yourself. It may also include writing down your wishes, and talking with healthcare providers and financial or legal professionals.
Start the conversation today with your Substitute Decision Maker!
