What is an Advance Care Plans and why should I have one?


With last week being Advance Care Planning week, now is a great time to open up a conversation about what an advance care plan is, why you should have an advance care plan and how to make one. Everyone should consider having an advance care plan in place, but they are particularly important those who are elderly, frail, terminally ill or have chronic medical conditions.
