Your Health Care. Your Choice.
Everyone, Everyday, Every Community.
Honoring Choices provides free health care planning information and Massachusetts documents to make your personal health care plan. Your plan is your road map to help your family and health care providers understand your care goals, values and choices, and to ensure you get good care everyday and all through your life. Our Partners help adults & families connect to quality, person-directed care in their community.
Our Vision :
Everyone: Adults, 18 yrs & older, can make their own care choices and write down their choices in a health care plan; and
Everyday: Talk with family and health care providers to get good care everyday that honors their values & choices, and
Every Community: Connect to essential care and services in their community, all through their lifetime.
