Empowering Your Voice: Celebrate National Healthcare Decisions Day with CHN Health Care Group

Every year on April 16th, we recognize National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD). This important day serves as a reminder for all adults to have a conversation with loved ones about their healthcare wishes. At CHN Health Care Group, we believe informed patients and empowered families lead to better healthcare outcomes. 

Why NHDD Matters 

Having a plan in place for your future healthcare needs ensures your wishes are respected when you may not be able to speak for yourself. Through NHDD, we encourage everyone to: 

  • Learn about advance directives: This includes documents like living wills and healthcare power of attorney, which allow you to designate someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you cannot. 
  • Start a conversation with loved ones: Discuss your values, beliefs, and wishes regarding medical treatment. 
  • Complete an advance directive: Make your wishes known through a legal document. 

How CHN Can Help 

While CHN doesn’t directly provide legal guidance, we support NHDD by: 

  • Educating our healthcare professionals: We ensure our temporary staff is aware of the importance of advance directives and can answer basic questions from patients and families. 
  • Promoting open communication: We believe strong communication between patients, families, and healthcare providers is essential for quality care. 

Empowering You and Your Loved Ones 

National Healthcare Decisions Day is a chance to take control of your healthcare future and ensure your voice is heard. By planning ahead and having open conversations, you can bring peace of mind to yourself and your loved ones.
