The Quality Living to the End of Life coalition aims to encourage Western New York residents and their loved ones to consider, discuss and document their values and choices and to facilitate processes within the community that ensures that those values and choices are honored. April 16th is National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD), which focuses on making future healthcare decisions known to family, friends, and healthcare providers.
We're launching a social media campaign to encourage you and your family and friends to share your wishes and complete your advance directive. Check out the Conversation Project’s website for their starter kit for tips on how to have the conversation.
How to participate?
For NHDD we're asking you to #PickYourProxy. Call on the masses or call on yourself to discuss and document their values and choices for advance care planning. #PickYourProxy and tag @P2WNY via the P² Collaborative Facebook Page.
The #PickYourProxy campaign
National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate, and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. Post a picture of you with your proxy between April 8th and April 22nd, tagging @P2WNY, to be entered in to win a restaurant gift card (value of $50)!
