Advance Care Planning: Who Will Speak For You?

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process that encourages thinking and talking about your wishes for future health and personal care. By working through your wishes with your family or friends, you can explain to others what is important to you. This can be especially important should you find yourself ill and unable to communicate.

Thanks to the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, an Advance Care Planning kit assists Canadians in planning their emergency and end-of-life health care wishes. Through interactive workbooks and printable guides, you can assist your substitute decision maker by having your plan and wishes documented.

Give your loved ones the gift of knowledge and tell them what’s important to you.


Home Hospice Palliative Care can help facilitate connections with other community services.
