National Healthcare Decisions Day is April 16th

April 15, 2016

Advance care planning is making decisions about the care you would want to receive if you become unable to speak for yourself. These are your decisions to make, regardless of what you choose for your care, and the decisions are based on your personal values, preferences, and discussions with your loved ones.

National Healthcare Decisions Day is tomorrow April 16. Join Consumer Voice and Americans across the country in making future healthcare decisions known to family, friends and healthcare providers. Share your wishes and complete your advance directive, because your decisions matter! Consider, discuss, and document your advance healthcare wishes so they will be followed in the future. Learn more about National Healthcare Decisions Day and get free information at www.nhdd.org.

Plus, Consumer Voice created a new issue page for resources and information on advance care planning.
