Every adult, 18 years and old, or their Health Care Agent and Guardian, has the right to be fully informed about their health care to make choices for care that reflect each individual’s care goals, values, and priorities. Honoring Choices provides no-cost Massachusetts-based health care planning information; tools and discussion guides to help consumers and care providers have effective planning discussions at every phase of health.

It’s generally recommended that a basic plan include a Health Care Proxy, and a Durable Power of Attorney for the best protection of your rights and choices under Massachusetts law.
