My Voice, My Choice

My Voice, My Choice  shares the personal stories of Massachusetts’ adults as they navigate their own health care planning journeys. The videos below can help you understand your right to make choices, using your own language, and within your own culture, religion and ability.  Being understood and writing down your choices in your own language is also your right, which is why we’re providing no cost Massachusetts planning documents translated into some of the many languages commonly spoken in Massachusetts.
