Alameda County Care Alliance (ACCA) presents:
I Choose to Prepare
Tell YOUR Story!
Please join the ACCA in observance of ‘National Healthcare Decisions Day’ for an innovative celebration to empower congregants and community members in advance care planning and thinking through wishes at the end-of-life. According to a recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, only 1/3 of Americans have their end-of-life wishes documented. Rates are far lower for African American adults over 65, where only 19% have their wishes documented. The goal of this event is to approach the practice of advance care planning preparation in a positive, empowering and fun manner by including the use of music and the arts in various ways. There will be dancing, music, testimonies, and a host of other expressions centered around empowerment and preparation. We want everyone to know that their voices are powerful, their wishes are valued, and they can take control of their care by writing their wishes down.
