Start a Conversation that Matters!

Ask those close to you: 

 

When it comes to a health crisis, you may think those close to you know what you want.

But do they?

In the case of Sophie Leung, she had no idea of her mother’s wishes. When her mom, Faye Leung, ended up in emergency and unresponsive after a critical fall, Sophie authorized all interventions available to keep her mom alive. It wasn’t until her brother Wayne returned from a business trip several hours later, that she learned her mom’s wishes were to let her life end as nature intended — without life support interventions. Read the full story of Sophie’s mother here.

 

Advance Care Planning involves talking with those close to you about your health-care wishes, and deciding who speaks on your behalf if you cannot.

How Well Do You Know Me? conversation is part of the Advance Care Planning process.
