Advance care Planning Class

The Gift of Peace of Mind for Your Family

A medical crisis can happen at any age. Making health care plans for the future is an important step to ensure you get the medical care you want, even if family members are making the decision for you.

What is Advance Care Planning?

Advance Care Planning is a process of planning for future medical care in case you are unable to make your own decisions.

Advance Care Planning helps you and your loved ones have conversations about your values, preferences and wishes related to health care. If you are unable to speak for yourself due to illness or injury, it guides healthcare decisions and ensures that your personal preferences are honored.

Our trained facilitators can help you:

  • Initiate conversations
  • Provide assistance with advance care planning
  • Communicate wishes and any documents with your family, friends and health care provider

How can an Advance Directive help you?

Advances in medical technology have made it possible to sustain life, sometimes leading to difficult choices regarding end-of-life care.

If you have an Advance Directive, your wishes will be known and it is only used when you cannot speak for yourself. Our informational meetings are designed to educate you on advance care planning and offer you the option to schedule a free individual session with a facilitator to develop an individualized advance care plan.

If you have an Advance Directive that you would like to review at the session, please bring a copy with you. Advance Directive forms will be available if you are interested in completing one.
