Advanced Care Planning

The human spirit is at the heart of what we do. Even when the end of life appears on the horizon, there is always more that can be done. Exceptional care begins with understanding your goals. It begins with us listening to you . . . how you feel and what’s important to you. We focus on your experience. How do you want to spend your time? What matters most to you? Your own goals, whatever they are, become our goals. We’re here to help you live them. It’s your story.

Advance Care Planning is the process by which you consider what matters most to you if you become seriously ill; what medical treatments you want or don’t want, where you want to be at the end of your life and how you want the end of your story to go. Advance care planning includes communicating these choices to your health care agent, your family, friends and doctors. This process is not just for older adults; unexpected medical situations can occur at any age, so it’s important for every one over the age of 18 to plan ahead and help guide their loved ones in what matters most to them if they become seriously ill or injured.
