Compassion & Choices is committed to empowering people to get the care they want during a serious illness or at the end of life. One way we do that is by helping people plan well and become good advocates for themselves and their loved ones.

Advance care planning is about making thoughtful choices now, putting them into a written advance directive and discussing those choices with others. Advance planning helps ensure that we get the care we want and avoid what we don’t want, even if we’re unable to speak for ourselves.

Compassion & Choices provides tools and resources to help you and your loved ones Finish Strong by planning for an end-of-life experience that matches the life we’ve enjoyed—defined by love, purpose and agency. 

Visit our Plan Your Care Resource Center to find more than two dozen resources to help plan for end of life. Our Tools to Finish Strong specifically addresses planning your end-of-life care at every stage, even after a dementia diagnosis with our Dementia Values and Priorities Tool and Dementia Decoder.
