Planning Ahead

  • Advance Care Planning
    What is Advance Care Planning?  It’s about conversations. It’s about decisions.  It’s how we care for each other.
  • Before I die I want to…
    In her New Orleans neighborhood, artist and TED Fellow Candy Chang turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-blank question: “Before I die I want to ___.” Her neighbors’ answers — surprising, poignant, funny — became an unexpected mirror for the community. (What’s your answer?)
  • Vancouver Island Advance Care Planning
    Advance care planning is a process of reflection and communication that can take place across your lifespan. It is a time for you to reflect on your beliefs, values, and wishes. It is a time to let others know your health care and personal preferences if you are ever unable to speak for yourself.
  • Victoria Hospice – Planning Ahead
    As much as possible, it helps when facing a life-limiting illness to plan ahead. It can feel overwhelming to consider the many issues requiring your attention in the months or weeks to come, and you may wish to work together with family members, a trusted friend, your family doctor or other professionals to help you.

Self Care

  • Self Care for Caregivers
