Advanced Care Directives

National HealthCare Decisions Day (April 16th)

* Your Decision Matters *

In an effort to educate our communities and demystify the topic of advanced care planning, the National HealthCare Decisions Day initiative encourages the public to express their specific wishes regarding their healthcare decisions by preparing an advanced care directive. Having an advanced care directive in place will ensure that your medical preferences are properly carried out by healthcare facilities and providers. These documents are protected under New Jersey law.  They allow you to "speak for yourself' to the type of medical care you do or do not want under certain circumstances.
