What is Advance Care Planning? It is a process of reflection and communication; a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let your future substitute decision maker(s) know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself. Life can change in an instant! It is the best gift you can give your loved ones.
