Advance Care Planning Guide for People with Developmental Disabilities
Many of the conversations that surround end-of-life care include concepts and language that are challenging to follow, especially for people with developmental disabilities. Together with our partners, CCCC created a guide that enables people with developmental disabilities to advocate for themselves and stay in control of their lives through the very end.
Thinking Ahead: My Life at the End (PDF*) contains words, symbols and pictures that facilitate discussion with and decision-making by persons with developmental disabilities regarding their values, goals and treatment preferences at the end of life.
Thinking Ahead was made possible through a Wellness grant by the California Department of Developmental Services and reflects collaboration among Alta California, Golden Gate and Eastern Los Angeles Regional Centers, Board Resource Center and CCCC.
