Why Advance Care Planning is Important to Think About Now
Our firm recommends that everyone set up an advance care plan. Here is why you should start thinking about advance care planning now.
It Helps You Determine Your Wishes
Making an advanced care plan forces you to sit down and really think about what you would want in the event of a tragedy or life-altering accident. This can make you feel more prepared for the uncertainties of the future as well as get to know your own values better.
You Can’t Predict the Future
Many people think that they do not need to make an advance care plan yet because they are young, healthy, and have a low-risk lifestyle, but everyone should have an advance care plan in place. You cannot know what the future brings, but you can prepare for different possibilities and rest assured that, should something unexpected happen, you have a plan in place to ensure that decisions are made the way you want them to be.
Peace of Mind for You & Your Loved Ones
Having an advance care plan in place gives you the peace of mind of knowing what will happen in the event of a major accident, serious illness, or other tragedy. It also gives your family and loved ones a sense of security. This can help assuage feelings of anxiety in the face of uncertainty and help you and your family feel more stable in terms of the future.
