Healthcare Planning for Serious Medical Conditions
Getting through the healthcare system, at many doctors’ offices and different hospitals, has been a dizzying experience. ACP helped me understand what I want out of my healthcare (which is complicated!). It also opened my eyes to things that turned out to be important that I never knew I should think about before these discussions.
Our Iris facilitator really opened up a conversation within the family. We came into this (ACP) with many questions and concerns and left feeling like it was the best discussion about my health that we’d ever had.
I wish someone had suggested ACP years before. I feel like I have a stronger voice in my care. My discussions with my doctor and team are more clear and less stressful.
Planning for my medical care in the future lifted a big burden off my kids. I could see the relief in their faces after we finished the process.
