Protect your family. Don't make them guess what you want to be done when you can no longer speak for yourself. It’s unfair to them to assume they know what you want or to put the burden of decision upon them.
SSVMS's community program Honoring Wishes is here to help you and your family.
Honoring Wishes provides the resources necessary for the medical community and community at large to facilitate meaningful end-of-life care conversations and planning. Give your family the tools they need to honor your medical care wishes by creating an Advance Care Plan.
Honoring Wishes pays for the Sacramento region community members to have free access to the Five Wishes Advance Care Plan. The Five Wishes document is a complete approach to discussing and documenting your care and comfort choices. It's about connecting families, communicating with healthcare providers, and showing your community what it means to care for one another.
