It should include choosing who you want to be your agent and advocate, the person who will speak for you when you cannot speak or advocate for yourself, and the completion of a Health Care Directive—a written document that outlines your preferences, to guide your loved ones and medical team as decisions are made. This document should be discussed and shared with your loved ones and your primary care provider. Honoring Choices will present a an introduction to Advance Care Planning, followed by time for questions and answers to help people learn the basics of ACP and how to begin. We provide informational handouts and blank copies of health care directives to let people start the ACP process.
