  • The Written Gift: Creating a Health Care Directive

    What is the Written Gift? The Written Gift is a local nonprofit dedicated to engaging the community in an advanced care planning process while promoting end of life choices based on an individual's goals, values and beliefs. Volunteers from the Written Gift will walk you through filling out an advance care directive for health care. The advance directive form can also be used to talk with loved ones about your values and goals related to your future health care needs. Your directive should be detailed enough to allow the people who are reading it to feel confident they can make decisions that would align with what you would say, if you were able to be a part of the conversation. We can't do what you want if we don't know what that is. Let’s get started today!
