Advance Care Planning: It’s Your Care. It’s Your Decision.
The As You Wish ADVANCE CARE PLANNING program is available to you, at no cost, with helpful guidance in your understanding and completion of an Advance Directive for Health Care. It’s important. It’s personal. You can do it. We can help.
Our Virginia Advance Directive for Health Care can be downloaded from our website (asyouwishvirginia.org). Answers to frequently asked questions are also listed.
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is a founding partner of the Advance Care Planning Coalition of Eastern Virginia and the As You Wish ADVANCE CARE PLANNING program.
Do you have your own advance directive for health care (also known as a living will with a medical power of attorney)? Then you know the value and benefit of this important, personal document. Most adults do not have an advance directive and the As You Wish Advance Care Planning program is seeking community ambassadors to help address the gap in guidance that has so many people unaware and unprotected by not having their own wishes for end-of-life care properly documented. We respond to requests for guidance. Opportunities are available throughout the year.
All training is provided by the Advance Care Planning Coalition of Eastern Virginia. Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is a founding coalition partner and hosts the coalition office.
