Why Is Advance Care Planning Important?

By John Bauslaugh on November 09, 2015

Advance care planning gives you the opportunity to make choices about your future personal care. It can give you the peace of mind that someone you know and trust understands your wishes and will act on them on your behalf, should they ever need to.



It can make it easier for everyone concerned: easier for you, because you'll have the confidence that your wishes are know; easier for those close to you, because it can reduce their stress in making tough decisions on your behalf; and easier for your care providers, because they'll be able to act in keeping with your wishes in an emergency.
