Today is National Health Care Decisions Day
Join Americans across the country in making future healthcare decisions known to family, friends and healthcare providers. Share your wishes and complete your advance directive, because…YOUR DECISIONS MATTER!
Two years ago, we held a series of events called COYL - the Conversation of Your Life. It included advance care planning discussions so that in case you are unable to speak for yourself, the health care treatment you receive is consistent with what you want. More than anything, advance care planning is a gift of clarity for both you and your family. Indicating your preferences for end-of-life care well ahead of time saves your loved ones from having to make emotionally taxing decisions on your behalf; instead, they can have clarity in their actions and focus on spending time with you.
