Advance Care Planning & Making Decisions

What matters most in life and health is different for everyone. The more your health care team knows about what matters most to you, the better you can work together.

The Planning and Making Health Care Decisions page helps you identify your health care priorities and make decisions about your health care now.

If you become very sick or hurt and cannot speak for yourself, you can decide in advance the kinds of treatments you want by Completing an Advance Directive. Learn more below.
As you make your health care plans, talk to your support team: your loved ones, trusted advisors and VA health care team. Learn more below.

The More Resources page has helpful websites, forms, and handouts.
