Be Heard When You Can't Speak

Do your Advance Serious Illness Planning today!

Welcome to Plan Well Guide

100% of people will experience a serious illness in their lifetime. Only 1/3 will get the right medical care.

Let’s change that.

Planning for serious illness helps to ensure that you receive the medical care that you want when you get seriously ill. Without planning in place, it will be up to the doctors and your family members to make decisions on your behalf.

Meet Dr. Daren Heyland, founder of Plan Well Guide. As a critical care physician for more than 25 years, he has recognized the essential importance for this planning and has built this tool to aid you in that process.

Most of us trust our doctors and our family members, but do you trust an error rate of 66%? It’s not our trust in them that matters. They need to be able to trust themselves to make the right decision. And they only know that when they know what you would’ve wanted. Let them know your wishes with an Advance Serious Illness Plan.

How confident is your substitute decision-maker in making life and death decisions for you?

It’s impossible to be 100% certain about what the right choice is in a life and death situation.

However, it’s a lot easier when your substitute decision-maker knows what you value, what your goals are, and what criteria you have chosen to base your decisions on.

Ease the burden of decision-making for your loved ones by putting your values on paper and create your Advance Serious Illness Plan today.

Serious Illness Planning is not End of Life Planning.

At the point when you experience a serious illness, doctors will need to know whether to apply life-sustaining treatments, and they may not know for sure if you are dying. End of life plans don’t apply.

We want to help you understand how communicating your values and preferences are an important part of decision-making about your medical care during a serious illness — whether you live or die.

Think your legal documents got you covered? Think again.

Did you know that the legal documents are completely inadequate for decision making in the event of a serious illness?

Unfortunately, too many people have to rely on unhelpful documents to aid them in their decision-making during a difficult time because their loved one has failed to make an Advance Serious Illness Plan.

Add one more planning document to your file that will be helpful to your decision-makers in a medical crisis (and it’s free).

“I feel it is so important to talk about these things. You don’t want to feel guilty about what was done. You want to feel like you honored your loved one’s wishes. I strongly encourage others to engage in this planning exercise — don’t procrastinate this task because you never know when you will need it!”
