Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes and to let people know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself.
This workshop will help you to identify who your Substitute Decision Maker is and know what your rights are in terms of Ontario's Health Care Consent Act. There will also be tips and tools shared about how to start ACP conversations with your people. Now is the time to prepare for the future. It is always too early until it is too late.
