It is important now, more than ever, to communicate your end-of-life plan with family and friends. 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. This conversation does not have to be awkward or difficult to discuss with your loved one’s, and with the help and guidance given by the Advanced Care Planning team, you are able to go through a checklist through our new interactive workbook to help you create a plan.
In the new interactive workbook, your plan for future health care can be easily recorded so that your wishes are respected. The workbook allows you to skip questions that you are unsure of, as well as allow you to come back to it and revise your wishes when you would like to change certain aspects of your plan. If you need more time, you can save and continue the process at a later time, with a link being sent to your email for easy access at a future date. If you wish to ensure your plan will be followed, share and review your plan with your substitute decision maker and your healthcare team regularly.
