Planning Ahead – Advance Care Planning

Advance care planning promotes care that is consistent with your goals, values, beliefs and preferences. It prepares you and others to plan for future health care and a time when you may no longer be able to communicate those decisions yourself. 
It involves 4 key things:

  1. Will (how you wish your assets to be distributed upon your death)
  2. Enduring Power of Guardianship (who makes personal, lifestyle and treatment decisions on your behalf)
  3. Enduring Power of Attorney (who makes financial and/or property decisions on your behalf)
  4. Advance Health Directive (outlines treatment you would want – or not want – to receive if you ever became sick or injured and were incapable of communicating your wishes)
