One of the greatest gifts you can give your family is to provide guidance on the treatments you would – and would not – want to receive if you were unable to speak for yourself. This is called advance care planning. Sharing this information with your family and loved ones will provide them with peace of mind, while also assuring that your wishes will be honored.
Five Wishes is an easy-to-use legal document that is valid in Illinois and most other states, and is written in everyday language that lets adults plan how they want to be cared for in case they become seriously ill. Five Wishes speaks to a person’s holistic needs: medical, personal, emotional and spiritual.
Presented by Maureen Burns, Community Health Worker, JourneyCare.
