All too often, individuals and their families are not prepared to face a health emergency for a loved one. When an individual’s treatment wishes are not known, especially at a time when they can’t speak for themselves, it can create incredible challenges for all involved. If your wishes are not documented, we’d like to help you take the next step.

Learn:
• An overview of preferred forms used among our local health systems
• How to choose an agent who will administer your wishes
• Conversation starters among family
• Next steps to complete your legal documents and Q&A
