Advance Care Planning

 

Plan Today to Make Tomorrow Less Stressful for Your Family

What is Advance Care Planning?

Advance care planning is an essential part of every well-crafted estate plan. It involves the decisions you make for the future regarding your preferences for personal health care, and then letting others, such as your family and medical team, know about those decisions. The goal is to make your preferences known if you cannot express them yourself. 

Will Your Family Be Forced to Guess?

Without advance care planning documents, your family will be asked to make difficult decisions about your care without knowing what you would want. This puts everyone in a difficult position and sets the stage for family conflict. Advance care planning decisions cover a wide variety of topics, including the use of emergency treatments to keep you alive. 

  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

  • Ventilator use

  • Tube feeding and intravenous therapy (IV) use for fluids
