TRU Community Care, along with other national, state and community organizations, are highlighting the importance of advance health care decision making – an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD).
As a participating organization, we are providing information and tools for you to talk about your wishes with your family, friends and health care providers, as well as executing written advance directives. These resources are available at www.nhdd.org.
As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in our community can be expected to have thoughtful conversations about their health care decisions and complete reliable advance directives to make their wishes known. Fewer families and heath care providers will have to struggle with making difficult health care decisions in the absence of guidance from the patient.
Advance care planning allows consumers to make medical care decisions by considering those decisions ahead of time and letting others know about their end-of-life care decisions.
