Plan While You Can!

Though the importance of advance directives is undeniable in ensuring healthcare wishes are known and honored at the end of life, most Americans still haven’t completed them. So Compassion & Choices, along with more than 100 other organizations and communities nationwide, is once again leading a massive effort to highlight the importance of healthcare decision-making for the 8th annual National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) on April 16.

C&C urges every adult who hasn’t done so to consider April 16 a deadline to discuss your end-of-life wishes with your doctor and loved ones, and to put them in writing. We have all the resources you need on our website, including links to state-specific advance directives. And come April 16, we will have these tools – including our exclusive Dementia Provision and Assisted Living Facility Rider – available to download in one easy-to-print document.

Watch our Facebook page for graphics you can share to encourage others to get their plans in order. And check our events listings for NHDD events in your community. Don’t let another year go by!
