National Healthcare Decisions Day is recognized each year on April 16th – a national day of awareness designed to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning.
Talking with your loved ones openly and honestly, before a medical crisis happens, gives everyone a shared understanding about what matters most to you at the end of life. We know that no guide and no single conversation can cover all the decisions that you and your family may face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.
