National Healthcare Decisions Day is now on its tenth year! NHDD’s initiative aims to impart the importance of having one’s advance healthcare directives known. Letting your loved ones know what matters most to you, ahead of time, can be one of the best gifts you can ever give. If you have never talked to your family about your health care wishes or haven’t completed any advance directives, we encourage you to open the discussion this week! If you already have, help others start the conversation!
This year’s week-long event runs from April 16 to 22 and we hope that you will be able to find time and open this important conversation with those who matter most to you. Start the talk over coffee or while sharing a meal; it doesn’t need to be in the hospital or the Intensive Care Unit. Everyone’s choices matter!
