As You Wish ADVANCE CARE PLANNING is a program dedicated to engaging the community in the awareness and understanding of advance care planning and conversations that support completion of Advance Directives.
As You Wish; it’s an empowering phrase that states to others that what you want is most important. This is especially true when it comes to the health care you receive, and it is no more essential than when serious injury or illness prevents you from communicating your healthcare wishes.
Those wishes are personal and extremely important, but they need to be known in order to be honored.
A unique collaboration of four leading health systems and four area agencies on aging formed the Advance Care Planning Coalition of Virginia with membership open to all health providers and human service organizations. The goal of the Coalition, through the As You Wish program, is to help every adult in the community understand the value of Advance Care Planning and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having completed an Advance Directive for Health Care. To complement the discussions and assistance a patient can receive on Advance Directives from their health system, Coalition partners with their extensive network of home and community based services, lead this initiative where adults live, work, pray, and play. .
Together we can do this through One Brand, One Message, One Directive and Guidance for All.
