FLINT — If you became seriously ill or injured and could not speak for yourself, who would make decisions for you regarding your medical care?
Advance care planning is more than completing a written document. It is a process of planning end of life care, clarifying the type of medical treatment you want to receive if you cannot voice your preferences on your own, and talking with your loved ones about your wishes.
Ask yourself …
What is most important to you and how do you want to live at the end of your life?
Where do you want to receive your medical care?
Who do you want to be involved in your care?
