Have the conversation before the crisis.
Plan ahead for your family's peace of mind.
Are you prepared should a health crisis hit? Have you designated somebody to make health decisions when you cannot make them for yourself? Are your wishes documented? If your answer is no, you are among the 74 percent of Americans who do not have an advance directive. According to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the reason for this was simply lack of awareness. Bronson has a team of specialists to help with advance care planning, which includes:
- Review of goals and values
- Documenting healthcare wishes with an advance directive
- Tips for sharing wishes with friends/family
Bring your lunch and attend a free presentation for a glimpse into advance care planning. There will be opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one session for you and your family – so you can be prepared for the future. You also will learn how to help your patients better understand what advance care planning is.
Don’t let a crisis be a burden on your loved ones.
