THE COUNTDOWN TO ACP DAY 2020

2020/04/16 12:00:00

A Life Well Lived is a Life Well Planned

April 16th marks National Advance Care Planning Day in Canada.

Advance Care Planning is the process of thinking and talking about your wishes, values, and preferences for your future care in the event you are unable to speak for yourself. Decide who would speak for you — choose your Substitute Decision Maker.

On the evening of April 16th, between 6 and 8 pm, take the opportunity to speak with your family, friends and loved ones about your values, wishes and what is most important to you.
