Advance Care Planning

we can't honor your wishes if we don't know what they are 


One conversation can make all the difference.

It’s not easy to talk about how you want the end of your life to be, but it’s one of the most important conversations you can have with your loved ones. It isn’t just about filling out forms.  It’s about talking to loved ones about what you or they want for end-of-life care.  Download a conversation starter kit.

Advance Care Planning at Munson Medical Center can help you start this process. If you suddenly became unable to communicate, your family members would be asked to make numerous medical care decisions for you. Would they know what you want?

Maybe you’ve lost someone close to you and weren’t able to have the conversation with them that you wanted to have. Or, maybe you’ve had the conversation and would like to tell others how it went.

No matter what your story, we invite you to share it. Your story could help someone else facing a similar situation. If you’d like to upload a photo to accompany your story, we invite you to share that, too.

We think that hearing about other people’s experiences can be a good way to get your own conversation started. Would you like to share your story?  Visit
