Introduction to Advance Care Planning

We plan for birthdays, weddings, and even dinner – so why don’t we plan our health care?

What health care decisions are made when you are no longer capable of making them yourself? Who acts as your Representative or Substitute Decision Maker? What are your values, wishes and beliefs?

Learn about these terms, what they mean and how to answer them in the workshop.
