Future Care Decisions

A spiritual approach to care

Making end-of-life decisions for yourself or a loved one can be daunting. At Adventist Health, we want to help you make these important decisions. We offer several tools and services to help you make sense of the process and clarify your options.

Planning ahead for the future is important, and we aim to provide you with as much control as possible. Through healthcare directives and physician orders for life sustaining treatments, you can have a say in how you are treated and cared at the final stages of life. These forms can be changed at any time and provide medical professionals with direction while caring for you, even if you are unconscious.

Adventist Health chaplains are happy to help you understand and fill out healthcare directives and physician orders for life-sustaining treatment. We believe spiritual care and faith can help you approach future care decisions with a clearer mind and more confidence.
