R. Bruce Dalglish Highlights the Importance of Proactive Healthcare Planning on National Healthcare Decisions Day

Founder and CEO of Alliance Hospice and All Caring Hospice, R. Bruce Dalglish today celebrated the National Healthcare Decisions Day and highlighted the importance of proactive planning and making your healthcare choices known to family and loved ones.

“Regardless of age and health history, it is important that all of us plan ahead and put our healthcare preferences in writing,” said R. Bruce Dalglish, CEO of Philadelphia area headquartered Alliance Hospice and All Caring Hospice. “We all want to stay healthy for as long as possible, and no one likes to think of situations where they might become incapacitated to make their own decisions regarding the type of healthcare they want to receive. But unexpected health crises do happen, and that is why we need to ensure that our healthcare choices are known in case of an emergency.”

R. Bruce Dalglish added: “As we celebrate the National Healthcare Decisions Day, I would like to use my platform to help raise awareness about the importance of advance healthcare planning. I would like to encourage healthcare professionals to start conversations with their patients and help educate the public about the value of advance care planning. Theses conversations can prevent unnecessary medical expenses and save families from having to guess what their loved ones would want in case of a sudden health crisis.”

Celebrated on April 16, the National Healthcare Decisions Day was established to empower and educate the public and healthcare providers about the importance of advance care planning. The initiative encourages patients and families to discuss their wishes regarding healthcare and make them known to each other and their healthcare providers.
