Advance Care Planning

 

Advance Care Planning is a process of understanding, reflecting on and discussing future medical decisions, including end-of-life preferences.  This is an appointment that can be set up at the Richland Medical Center.  It may include:

  • Understanding your health care condition and treatment options.
  • Clarifying your health care wishes and defining what “living well” means to you.
  • Weighing your options about what types of care and treatment you would want or not want.
  • Choosing a health care agent who can speak for you if you become injured or ill and unable to communicate.
  • Communicating your wishes and sharing any documents with your family, friends, clergy, advisors, physicians and other health care professionals.
