lets get talking! April 5 is Conversations that Count Day, which aims to raise awareness about advance care planning. Advance care plans outline what healthcare treatment you would want if you had an accident or got a life-threatening illness and who can make decisions for you if you can't speak for yourself. Its not easy to think or talk about being unwell or dying, but it's an important conversation to have with loved ones now, before you need it.
Do you have a "what if" health plan? if you had an accident or suddenly became unwell, what healthcare treatment would you want and who would you want making decisions for you if you couldn't speak for yourself? Advance care plans outline theses details and relieve the burden on your family of having to make these decisions for you. Contact your medical centre for more information or visit www.advancecareplanning.org.nz and get your plan in place now before you need it.
