Advance care planning involves planning for your future health care. It enables you to make some decisions now about the health care you would or would not like to receive if you were to become seriously ill and unable to communicate your preferences or make treatment decisions.

Advance care planning helps to ensure your loved ones and health providers know what matters most to you and respect your treatment preferences.
