Advance Care Planning on Salt Spring Island

Something We all Need to Think About

None of us knows what tomorrow will bring. A health crisis may affect you or a family member at any time.

Advance care planning allows you to have a say in the health care you will receive if you are too sick to speak for yourself. It is a way to reflect on your values, beliefs and wishes so that you can make your own health care decisions. By discussing and documenting your wishes with your loved ones, health care team and family physician, they will be better able to act on your behalf.

Salt Spring Hospice offers you:

- Our extensive hospice library - pick up the “how to” booklet and ask for assistance with building your advance care plan.
- Our trained volunteers are available to do presentations to community groups and small gatherings.

Go to saltspringhospice.org and find out about presentations, resources and other programs offered through Salt Spring Hospice.
