PREPARE for Your Care is an easy-to-use, online, secure, advance care planning (ACP) program that uses videos and easy-to-read advance directives to help people make medical decisions based on their values, both now and in the future.

Advance care planning (ACP) helps people have a voice in their healthcare. It helps people name a trusted person to make medical decisions in case of an emergency and to prepare for medical decision making.


Since 2013, PREPARE for Your Care, developed by Dr. Rebecca Sudore, has provided easy-to-access advance care planning tools to more than a million people. PREPARE empowers people to have a voice in their healthcare – so they can live more good days, the way they choose. After 10 years of providing free, easy access to Advance Care planning tools, PREPARE has launched its first fundraising campaign! We would really appreciate your support.
