In these uncertain times, some people are preparing for a time when they may not be able to make their own health or personal care decisions because of their lack of mental capacity. This is called Advance Care Planning. It is not about decisions. It is about preparing you, and perhaps your future substitute decision maker, to step in and give or refuse consent for treatment. That person needs to know what is important to you- your values and wishes when it comes to health care decisions. Speak Up Ontario is a helpful resource for making such preparations.
