End of Life Care Planning


Five Wishes

Five Wishes is an advance directive that talks about your personal, emotional, and spiritual needs as well as your medical wishes. Five Wishes lets you say exactly how you wish to be treated if you get seriously ill. It was written with the help of the nation’s leading experts in end-of-life care and is easy to use. All you have to do it check a box, circle a direction, or write a few sentences.  

Where to Start

End-of-life care planning can be confusing, so we’ve created a helpful guide to all the documents you’ll need in the State of Arizona to complete your plans. We’ve also added some helpful resources for having the conversation with loved ones, as well as legal resources.

Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry

Once you have completed your advance care plans, you can upload them to the Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry. This will enable healthcare professionals to access your wishes when they are needed.
