Advance care planning is the process of coming to understand, reflect on, discuss and plan for a time when you cannot make your own medical decisions. The process is crucial to assist those closest to you and your physician(s) in respecting your choices regarding the care you want when you cannot make your own decisions. This plan is called an advance directive.
Gundersen is an international leader in advance care planning and has a wide range of resources that can help. We also have resources in the Boscobel area that can provide additional support.
