Why Advance Care Planning?

Advance care planning (ACP) helps you ensure that your medical wishes are honored in the event that you are unable to speak for yourself. Honoring Choices® Indiana – North Central is here to help you with the process, every step of the way.

We use Respecting Choices® First Steps® ACP Facilitator Certification, which is designed for professionals such as social workers, nurses, clergy, physicians, and others involved in assisting patients and residents in making end-of-life treatment decisions. We also encourage community members with an interest in helping healthy adults discuss and document their future healthcare decisions to become certified facilitators.

Honoring Choices® Indiana – North Central serves Elkhart, Marshall and St. Joseph counties by providing education, tools and resources to assist people with advance care planning.
