Advance Care Directive Advocacy, Training & Support
The importance of Advance Care Directives is gaining ground and support from community organizations, government, healthcare professionals and even the media. Making your final wishes clear may not be an easy conversation to have with your loved ones; however, the magnitude of these decisions impact whether your values, beliefs, and dignity will be represented at the end of your life, and ultimately how you will be remembered in your final days. Whether you choose to call the Shuswap Hospice Society for help with your Advance Care Directive (ACD), or your family health care practitioner, please, just start the conversation today!
