Advanced Care Planning
At NYOH, we believe Advance Care Planning (ACP) is an important topic, regardless of age or health status. Our trained ACP facilitators can help begin a dialogue about a patient’s preferences for life-sustaining treatment, in the event of illness or an accident.
We also help families establish a health care proxy to speak on a patient’s behalf and complete other important documents. By taking charge of these important decisions and creating a written document, our patients enjoy peace of mind, knowing their personal wishes will be honored.
Ask your nurse, physician or any NYOH staff for more information or to set up an appointment to discuss Advance Care Planning.
