Death finds us all eventually. We can’t prevent that. But we can direct how we’d like our final days to unfold. 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.
Due to a temporary disruption in our production supply chain, production and fulfillment of our End-of-Life Decisions Guide & Toolkit will be delayed by a few weeks. We appreciate your patience and will ship them out as soon as they are available.
About the Advance Planning Guide
Like many people, you may have put off making decisions about your end-of-life care. Thinking and talking about end-of-life issues can be difficult, and putting documents in place can seem daunting. That’s why we have developed this advance planning
The guide will help you think through your priorities for end-of-life care, complete an advance directive and other forms you may need, choose a representative to speak for you if you cannot, and consider common end-of-life medical interventions so you
can specify what you want or don’t want — right up to the end. And it will guide you in having valuable conversations with your healthcare providers and loved ones.
