Advance Care Planning

When people think of advance care planning, many believe having a will, a living will and a power of attorney are all they need. In truth all of these documents are important, but even more important is the planning process to ensure that your wishes and desires are met when the end of life comes. The only way to ensure your wishes are met is to have a comprehensive plan and discussion with those who will remain. This training can help you understand the process, know what types of things to include in your plan and teach you how to ensure your wishes will be followed.
