Take Charge!

What matters most to you?

  • If you were facing serious illness, what kind of care would you want?
  • If you couldn’t speak for yourself, who would?

Planning for your future care can bring peace of mind – to you and your loved ones.

Take charge:

  • Think about what matters most to you.
  • Talk about your wishes with your family and friends.
  • Choose your health care agent.
  • Write it down – and share your plan.
