Advance Care Planning: Keep Your Health Care Choices in Your Hands

Advance Care Planning: Keep Your Health Care Choices in Your Hands

Have you thought about how you want to be cared for when you can't take care of yourself? Or who to entrust with your important health care decisions. By establishing an Advance Directive, you can rest assured that you'll receive care on your terms because all the decisions made will be your own.

Take the time now to plan for your health care future with Advance Care Planning. This is the process of thinking, talking and deciding about what matters most related to your healthcare decision-making.
