Advance care planning (ACP) is preparing for when a person may not be able to make his or her own medical decisions. The process involves conversations throughout life about values, beliefs, and goals for future health care. Revisiting decisions and plans regularly and documenting wishes in a Health Care Directive is important. The document helps prepare for the unexpected by outlining values and priorities for future medical treatment and identifies a health care agent.
Trained Honoring Choices facilitators are available at CRMC Crosby to answer your questions and assist you in completing your Health Care Directive. A facilitator will be available the first and third Monday of each month. Call 218-546-7462 for a free appointment.
