Have you had the conversation?

Who will speak for you if you can’t speak for yourself? Do they know your wishes? How are health care decisions made if you cannot make them yourself?  Our advance care planning workshops and resources can answer these questions. Advance care planning is about planning for life, up to and including death.

Avez-vous eu la conversation?

Qui parlera pour vous si vous ne pouvez pas parler pour vous-même? Cette personne sait-elle ce que vous souhaitez? Comment peut-on prendre des décisions au sujet de vos soins de santé si vous ne pouvez pas les prendre vous-même? Vous trouverez des réponses à ces questions lors de nos ateliers de planification préalable des soins et les ressources offertes. La planification préalable des soins vise la planification de la vie, et ce, jusqu’à la mort.
