Making A Difference

Improving Access to Planning Conversations and Person-Directed Care

To date, our Partners & Ambassadors have helped thousands of Massachusetts adults and families start planning discussions, write down their care choices in MA planning documents, and connect to care in their community. The data below is reported to us quarterly by the Honoring Choices Partners & Ambassadors.  It is a conservative estimate of actual and estimated data. Not all Partners report quarterly; the actual totals may be higher.
