Today is National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) which is a day that came to be in order to educate and encourage the public, providers, and older adults about the importance of advanced care planning. As many of us in healthcare know, it is a very good idea to express to your loved ones and healthcare providers what your wishes are, whatever they may be, and if they ever change throughout your life. It’s never too soon to start planning.
There are many resources that can help you create your own advanced care plan. Check out https://theconversationproject.org/nhdd/ for more information!
