April 16th is National Healthcare Decisions Day

Young Couple Talking

Do you ever think about your wishes for care through the end of life, or if you were incapacitated and unable to communicate your wishes? On this National Healthcare Decisions Day, take the time to reflect and start the conversation about what matters most to you.


Several tools and resources are available to help people start these conversations and document their wishes.


The Conversation Project helps people share their wishes for care through the end of life and offers free Conversation Guides. 


CaringInfo is a program offered through the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) that provides free resources to educate and empower patients and caregivers to make decisions about serious illness and end-of-life care and services. Individuals may access advance directives and instructions for each state.
