Planning Ahead for the End of Life

"A Gift To Your Family" is a collaborative, statewide initiative to educate North Carolinians on the importance of talking to their loved ones about how much medical care they want at the end of their life and about their right to choose and memorialize those decisions to ensure they are followed.

We plan for birth, college, marriage – shouldn’t we also plan for our End-of-Life care?

The goal of this website is to provide you with the resources necessary to help make sure your medical treatment wishes are known and honored by your family, friends, and health care providers.

Please take a few moments and begin to consider planning End-of-Life care, commonly referred to as "Advance Care Planning," so that you can give your family the greatest gift during a time of crisis . . . peace of mind. Click on the “Start Here” tab to begin this very important process.
