I am interested to have ACP done. How do I go about doing it?
To book an appointment, you may:
Am I eligible for ACP?
Anyone 21 years old and above is eligible to have ACP done.
Do I need to bring my family member along?
As ACP involves your loved ones in the discussion, we would require you to identify and appoint a trusted family member or close friend as a Nominated Healthcare Spokesperson (NHS).
An NHS is important and necessary. This person will be your spokesperson should you become incapable of decision making.
An NHS must fulfill 4 criteria:
- Able to discuss your preferences, values and goals
- Willing to follow your preferences
- Able to make decisions under stressful situations
Can I change my ACP after I have completed it?
Definitely. ACP is an ongoing discussion. It does not end when you sign the document.
Keep the conversation going with your loved ones, and review your ACP with a certified ACP Facilitator if there is a change in your medical or life circumstances.
Do I need to pay to document my ACP?
No, it is free.
