Advance Care Planning

If you are over 65, live alone or have a chronic illness you are strongly encouraged to develop an Advance Care Directive in conjunction with your doctor. This plan will document your wishes regarding future care if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself.

If you already have an Advance Care Directive, it is really important that you bring a copy of it into hospital so that we are aware of your wishes and can provide your care accordingly. Please see Advanced Care Planning for more information.
