National Advance Care Planning Day

Every year has a specific day is set aside in April to promote the importance of ACP.

Everyone has a community of care – the people we help, and the people we depend on for help. If you became ill, mentally incapable or could not speak for yourself, would your family, friends, and community know your wishes? Do they know who would speak for you? National Advance Care Planning Day is the perfect time to think about these things – so much so, that our team of NSM Advance Care Planning Champions have decided to celebrate it across North Simcoe Muskoka over the course of a week.

We want individuals to think about the people in their community and provide suggestions of how to start to have conversations about their future health care and decide on a Substitute Decision Maker(s).

Throughout the year, ACP presentations are provided throughout North Simcoe Muskoka. If you would like more information about Advance Care Planning, or would like to book a presentation to your club or group, please contact Lynda Meeks..
