Why Does Conversation Matter?

When planning for your future health care, start by asking your family and friends: How well do you know me? These people may need to make health care decisions for you if you can’t, and you may be surprised at what they don’t know about you! Use the How Well Do You Know Me questions to get the conversation started.

How Well Do You Know Me?

  • What do I worry about most when it comes to my future health?
  • What values, beliefs and wishes are most important to me?
  • Do you know my thoughts about being an organ donor?
  • Who would I want involved in decisions about my health care?
  • Which is more important to me – the length of my life or the quality of my life?
  • Who would I feel most comfortable with helping me with my personal care?
  • Would you know where to look for a copy of my important personal information?
  • Advance Care Planning involves talking with others about your health-care wishes and deciding who speaks on your behalf if you can’t.
