News and Education

Advance care planning helps you, the important people in your life and your health care team plan for your end-of-life care.

It helps you understand what the future might hold, and to say what health care you would or would not want. This makes it much easier for everyone to understand your wishes – especially if you can no longer speak for yourself.

To find out more and to begin your Advance Care Plan, go to www.myacp.org.nz

Dementia Advisors hold clinics for one-on-one advice  Please contact the Dementia Advisor in your area.
