Undertaking advance care planning is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let others know your future health and personal care preferences so that they can speak for you, if you can’t speak for yourself. It’s about the conversation, with friends and family and with your doctor.

It’s a good idea to then store the advance care plan with any document that appoints a person to make medical decisions for you under the laws of your state or territory .. Copies of your advance care plan should be given to your representatives, members of your family and your doctor.
