Advance Care Planning - A Gift To Your Family

In health care today, many people do not receive the care they wish for when they are put into a situation that prevents them from communicating those wishes to family and their health care providers. This creates undue stress in an already stressful situation for family and friends. Through advance care planning, you can receive the care you want.
