National Healthcare Decisions Day 2.0

National Healthcare Decisions Day 2.0

In the future, those of us who survive 2020 will use words like “scary,” and “uncontrollable” in describing this pandemic year. But right now, you can control one very important aspect of your life – the end of your life. I’m not being flippant. It’s true.

Due to the pandemic, National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD), which is always the day after Tax Day, is doing a reboot or a second round – a 2.0. Since Tax Day was moved to July 15, NHDD is moving to July 16. NHDD has always used the “death and taxes” slogan to remind people to complete or review their advance care directive.

If you’re an individual who hasn’t completed your advance care directive, we offer a free download from our website of our workbook in English or Spanish.

Whether you are an organization or an individual, you can call us anytime if you have questions or need guidance on advance care directives.

So 2020 is scary and much of what’s happening may be uncontrollable, but hosting an NHDD event or filling out your directive can be an easier accomplishment in 2020 with the Center’s resources.
