Today is dedicated to taking control of your long-term healthcare plans. It’s National Healthcare Decisions Day – a day to educate the public and health care provider about the importance of advance care planning.
A Pew Research study found only seven out of 10 Americans have a plan in case they lose the ability to make health care decisions for themselves.
Today, millions of health care workers including people who work for the state and federal governments will receive training on how to talk to their patients about planning for future care.
