Charted Healthcare Planning

It’s never too early to have a plan.

If you were unable to make decisions about your health care or pass away, would anyone know your wishes? Would your health condition and other affairs be properly handled?

An Advance Care Directive is a personalized plan that outlines your wishes in the event of your death or a serious medical condition. These plans make it easy for family, friends, and health care professionals to make decisions about your care and understand your wishes when you are unable.

The Charted Healthcare Planning Coalition exists to ensure everyone in Muskegon County has a plan for their future health care. They continuously work with organizations, health care professionals, and the community to educate them on the importance of making a plan and how to have this difficult conversation with friends, family, and patients.

Staff is available at Tanglewood Park the second Thursday of every month from 10am-12pm to assist community members in developing a Medical Power of Attorney and making their future health care wishes known. Call 231-733-8643 to schedule a FREE appointment! Download the flyer below for more information.
