What if you were in an accident or became suddenly ill? Who would speak for you?
Making your healthcare choices known in advance is a gift to those you love.
WAHA End of Life Choices is a community-wide advance care planning program which offers residents the opportunity to reflect on their wishes for medical care when they cannot speak for themselves and record their wishes in an Advance Directive Document. We offer free Community Workshops, and opportunities to meet with skilled and Certified Facilitators to help identify personal, basic goals for life-sustaining treatment. The Facilitator can also help you recognize qualities that are important in an effective Health Care Agent, and assist you in documenting your preferences for care in the Advance Directive.
