Advance care planning involves learning about the types of decisions that might need to be made, considering those decisions ahead of time, and then letting others know about your preferences, often by putting them into an advance directive. Advance care planning is not just about old age. At any age, a medical crisis could leave someone too ill to make his or her own healthcare decisions. Even if you are not sick now, making healthcare plans for the future is an important step toward making sure you get the medical care you would want, even when doctors and family members are making the decisions for you.
More than one out of four older Americans face questions about medical treatment near the end of life but are not capable of making those decisions. Representatives from New Jersey Long-term Care will be in to discuss some questions you can think about now and describe ways to share your wishes with others. You will learn the proper course to take to ensure your wishes are fulfilled to help take the burden off family and friends, and most importantly ease your mind.
