You can choose how you want to be treated at the end of your life. Here’s how

We all have individual ideas and beliefs about how we want to be treated at the end of our life.

Talking about what you want and creating an advance care plan will help the people caring for you to follow your wishes as closely as possible. Healthcare professionals, whānau (family), and other people involved in your care may all find it useful.

When you make a plan, you should give copies to your whānau, people who live with you, and anyone who has enduring power of attorney in your name.

You can update your advanced care plan if your situation changes or you change your mind about anything in the plan.
