Advance Care Planning

It can be beneficial to have conversations about your values and wishes should you become seriously ill. Deciding on the types of treatment you prefer and making that known early can relieve much stress and anxiety for you and your family because they know your wishes.

It is important to address what can be emotionally difficult decisions before an urgent situation emerges. For example, you may need to consider whether to have life-extending treatment, although it may cause pain and discomfort, or treatment that concentrates on pain and discomfort relief, but may not extend life.
