ABOUT US

If you became unable to make decisions about your healthcare, would anyone know your wishes?  Who would speak for you?  How will you make sure that loved ones and healthcare providers know what type of treatment you want and don’t want?

An Advance Directive, or Advance Care Plan, is a personalized plan that outlines your wishes and appoints an advocate in the event of a serious medical condition. These plans provide a guide for loved ones, and healthcare professionals to make decisions about your care if you are unable.

The Charted Healthcare Planning Coalition wants to offer every adult in our lakeshore communities an opportunity to create a plan for their future healthcare.  We offer education on the advance care planning process and how to have difficult conversations with loved ones.  We also offer free advance care planning documents and assistance with completing these documents.
