Planning Guide
Sharing Your Wishes is a program to make older adults aware of the importance of planning in advance for their health care in the event that they experience an illness or condition that prevents them from making or communicating decisions. This is the best way to ensure that their choices are known, understood, and honored.

The Sharing Your Wishes Planning Guide will help older adults have conversations with those close to them to plan ahead for health care decisions.
