National Healthcare Decision Week

decision day

National Healthcare Decision Week, April  16-22, aims to help people all over the United States understand the importance and value in advanced healthcare planning. The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping you talk about your end-of-life preferences and wishes. It’s crucial to start these conversations with your family, loved-ones, and physicians-before it’s too late. By doing so, we can make sure that our own wishes and those of our loved ones are expressed and respected.

National Healthcare Decisions Day is a collaborative effort of national, state, and community organizations committed to ensuring that all adults with decision-making capacity have the information and resources to communicate and document their future healthcare decisions. In support of this, CompassionCare Hospice will be showing a free screening of the PBS Frontline documentary, “Being Mortal”, throughout our community for the entire month of April. You can join us this week!
