Personal Values Statement:

A personal values statement is a summary of individuals’ values and goals of care relating to their end-of-life wishes. It is a personal story or narrative that helps families, surrogates and health care providers understand patients as people apart from their illness and/or disability. This statement will help to fill in the gaps in health care requests that may occur in living wills/health care directives.
