About My Wishes Alberta

Planning for your future care and sharing those plans with others is the best way to ensure that your wishes are followed, and reduce the stress for the people closest to you if a time comes when you are unable to speak for yourself.

Adapted by the Palliative Institute from the Coming Full Circle booklet (created by Canadian Virtual Hospice and a national Indigenous Elders Circle), My Wishes Alberta provides reflection questions and space to journal your thoughts.

It is an important first step in thinking about, discussing and planning your health and personal care.

This booklet does not replace formal advance care planning documents such as a personal directive or goals of care designation order.

How to use it

  1. Download the workbook.

Helping others?

Hi, my name is Morningstar and I'm a volunteer with our local Pride Centre. I want to offer an advance care planning workshop, as I'm aware that many of my fellow LGBTQ2S+ people are deterred from it out of fear of discrimination.

As such I'm currently looking for friendly resources to help educate people about this process.
