Advance Care Planning
Advance care planning is a process of reflection and communication, a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let others know your future health and personal care preferences in the event that you become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment or other care. Making decisions to withhold or stop medical treatment for a loved one at any age is hard to imagine for us, let alone prepare for. However, following the wishes of our friends and family members can be comforting. Making an advance care plan is a gift to your loved ones. If they are ever in a position to speak on your behalf, they will know what to says as you have made your wishes known and your voice will be heard through your own advance care plan.
We provide workshops through out the year that discuss this process in great detail. To keep up to date, we suggest you visit our month at a glance calendar for sessions dates. This is a free educational sereies, donations are always welcome!
