April 16, 2015 is National Healthcare Decision Day (also known as NHDD)! At Falk, Cornell & Associates we are very familiar with this topic. We always encourage our clients to have an updated Healthcare Directive and to discuss their wishes with loved ones. If you have a friend or family member who has been putting off creating a Healthcare Directive please encourage them to take a look this website: www.nhdd.org. This site has several topics that can help inspire and educate the public of the importance of making health care decisions. Some of the topics include:
- What is an Advanced Directive?
- Where can I get an Advanced Directive?
- Where can I find State Specific Resources?
Also, the website includes resources for family conversations for that one family member who makes every excuse to avoid the subject.
Join us in celebrating National Healthcare Decisions Day by reviewing your Advanced Health Care Directive and if you have changes or do not have a health care directive, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
