Should someone become critically ill, it’s possible they will be unable to make decisions related to their care and financial arrangements. Appointing an alternate decision maker and really preparing them to advocate for you is a smart anticipatory action for all adults, especially as we live through this global pandemic.

Join our expert Dr. Daren Heyland, Critical Care Physician, Professor of Medicine at Queen’s University, and founder of the Plan Well Guide, as he talks about how you can prepare for serious illness decision-making and how that’s different from end-of-life planning as is traditionally done with legal planning or advance care planning. The goal of advance serious illness planning is to ensure that you get the medical care that is right for you with the least stress on your loved ones that will be advocating for you.
