Based on Your Responses...
Advance care planning is making decisions about the care you would want to receive if you become unable to speak for yourself. This planning helps you understand and document your goals for care.
These are your decisions to make, regardless of what you choose for your care, and the decisions are based on your personal values, preferences, and discussions with your loved ones.
If you are in an accident or have an illness that leaves you unable to talk about your wishes, who will speak for you?
You can tell your family, friends and healthcare providers what your wishes and personal beliefs are about continuing or withdrawing medical treatments at the end of life.
