An Advance Care Plan helps you to gain clarity on what type of medical assistance you do and do not want should you find yourself in hospital. An Advance Care Directive is the formal documentation that advises others of your treatment choices should you not be able to communicate these to your medical team.
This web site provides information, tools, training and other services to help you get your affairs in order so you can live the best possible life right up to your last natural breath.

If you can’t find what you want, please use the Contact option and ask me a question and I’ll get back to you.
I’ve gathered up as much information as I could from around the globe to help you to make the best choices suited to your life and spiritual values.
Why go to all this effort? Well, ‘we don’t know what we don’t know’, and I want this community portal to help you to discover what you need to know to be able to make positive choices that are not only right for you, but will soothe your family at a very difficult time.
