COVID-19 Advance Care Planning: Who Will Speak for You?

If you became seriously ill with COVID-19, what are your treatment options? Do you want to be intubated and on a ventilator? What about CPR? Who will speak for you if you can’t speak for yourself?

These are challenging times. Being prepared—both for ourselves and the people we care about—is the key to effectively managing a COVID-19 infection. Remember, it is always too soon, until it is too late. So, let’s get you prepared.
