The Have You Had the Talk™ Campaign urges all adults to consider what kind of care and plans they want followed if they ever need to rely on someone else for their medical care and decision-making. The best time to plan and prepare is when there is no emergency or health crisis. The Talk is a gift to anyone who needs to know what you want when you can no longer speak for yourself. And it is a gift of peace of mind to you.
A free Have You Had the Talk™? Toolkit can be downloaded here.
