Life Care Planning
Life care planning beginnings with completing an Advance Health Care Directive to ensure that your values and wishes regarding health care are honored if, for any reason, you are unable to communicate for yourself. We can help guide you on how to complete an Advance Health Care Directive, what to consider in making health decisions, and choosing a health care agent to speak on your behalf. Life Care Planning classes are available, or you can arrange to speak with a member of our staff for personalized instruction. Visit kp.org/lifecareplan or visit Health Education to learn about completing an Advance Care Directive and how to start planning for the future.
