Help members and patients to live well to the very end.

And then, help them to die well.

As a healthcare professional, you know how difficult it can be to begin advance care planning conversations. You hesitate to introduce the discussion. When a medical emergency unfolds, patients and family members are often ill-prepared, feeling overwhelmed and scared. Emotions are amplified. Family dynamics are on steroids.

If only people would start the conversation sooner… if only they’d considered end-of-life preferences before the diagnosis…before the crisis.

You’ve witnessed the battles.

In the absence of clear healthcare instructions, families can unravel. Siblings battle over treatment decisions for Mom or Dad. Healthcare professionals feel caught between fearful family members wanting treatment options for a loved one and patients deserving compassionate and more peaceful end-of-life care.

Protect everyone from painful conflict.

Encouraging your members and patients to proactively complete a meaningful healthcare directive creates the opportunity for thoughtful discussion. Loved ones can hear the patient’s future healthcare preferences at a family meeting—calmly—before a medical emergency triggers the need to reference a directive. Healthcare agents, family members and the medical team can be equipped to confidently honor the patient’s wishes when a life-threatening crisis occurs.

Advance the art of Advance Care Planning.

By offering innovative healthcare directives education and support, members, patients and loved ones can proactively learn and absorb the core concepts: goals of care, types of intervention, the role of healthcare agents, comfort care and more. Subsequent advance care planning appointments with a healthcare professional become more successful. More questions will be answered; conversations will go deeper. Healthcare instructions will become clearer. Members, patients and their families will be better served.
