In recognition of National Healthcare Decisions Day 2022, we’re talking about advance care planning. What’s your plan for your healthcare and who have you told it to? National Healthcare Decisions Day was started in 2008 by attorney Nathan Kottkamp to encourage people to complete their advance care planning. Every year on April 16 (the day after Tax Day), National Healthcare Decisions Day is observed. It’s the perfect day to make your end of life plans. Develop your plan - think about your beliefs, wishes, and wants for healthcare during a serious illness. Document your plan - put your plan into the legal forms that are accepted in your state or province. Discuss your plan - tell your healthcare provider team and your family or those who would help with your care. Eliminate the chance that you’ll receive care you don’t want, care that won’t work, or care you can’t afford by making your wishes known. Happy National Healthcare Decisions Day 2022!
