We invite you to join us in this years National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16th. This date was purposely chosen to illustrate the point about the two inevitable things in life: death and taxes. We are often unaware of the multitude of decisions that may come into play if we are suddenly stricken by an accident or illness. Having documents and understandings in place that help our loved ones support our choices is critical, both legally and personally.
- Allow you to retain control over what happens to you
- Empower your loved ones with clear directions
- Help medical personnel understand what you want
- Support your loved ones in being able to focus on what is most important.
There are Starter Kits and advance directive documents available online, or you can visit the exhibits at Boulder Community Health and Longmont United Hospital between the hours of 11am-1pm. For more information on the importance choosing a decision-maker and having a conversation, please visit www.nhdd.org.
