Advance Care Planning is a process of:
- thinking about your values, beliefs, and wishes for future health and personal care, and
- sharing them with the people you trust.
Advance Care Planning can include choosing who would make care decisions for you if you cannot.
It can help you get the care that’s right for you, even if you’re unable to speak for yourself.
Advance Care Planning is part of life planning.
You might have done some other types of life planning already – such as preparing a will, saving for retirement or appointing a guardian for your child.
Advance Care Planning is another type of life planning… it’s planning ahead for your future health and personal care.
