National Healthcare Decisions Day--April 16th

by Sarah

Today is National Healthcare Decisions Day. What does that long, overwhelming name mean? It means that today we bring awareness to the public and health care providers about the importance of advance care planning.

End-of-life care can be a daunting topic to bring up, especially with those that may need to discuss it the most such as elderly parents or grandparents. It isn’t the most enjoyable topic to talk about, but having the conversation sooner rather than later can make those difficult decisions easier for a family in the long run.

Whether you are wanting to start the conversation with a loved one or you would like to start a care plan for yourself, the National Healthcare Decisions Day website is a great place to start. They have many resources on their website such as a Conversation Starter Kit, how to choose a health care proxy, and state-specific resources just to name a few.

The best time to start planning for your healthcare or the healthcare of a loved one is NOW! Take a few minutes today to browse what resources can guide you on your planning path!
