National Healthcare Decision Day, April  16-22, aims to help people all over the United States understand the importance and value in advanced healthcare planning. The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping you talk about your end-of-life preferences and wishes. It’s crucial to start these conversations with your family, loved-ones, and physicians-before it’s too late. By doing so, we can make sure that our own wishes and those of our loved ones are expressed and respected.

National Healthcare Decisions Day is a collaborative effort of national, state, and community organizations committed to ensuring that all adults with decision-making capacity have the information and resources to communicate and document their future healthcare decisions. In support of this, CompassionCare Hospice will be showing a free screening of the PBS Frontline documentary, “Being Mortal”, throughout our community for the entire month of April. You can join us this week!

If you thought you were dying, what would matter most to you? “Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. See this moving documentary, join the conversation, and explore what matter to you.
