Compassion & Choices is the nation’s oldest, largest and most active nonprofit organization committed to improving care and expanding choice at the end of life Across the nation, we work to protect and expand end-of-life options — and to ensure healthcare providers honor and enable patients’ decisions about their care. To make this vision a reality, Compassion & Choices works nationwide in state legislatures, Congress, courts, medical settings and communities to:
empower people with information and tools, including our free consultation program, to receive healthcare that is consistent with their values and priorities as they approach the end of life,.
advance policies that allow people to make fully informed decisions about their healthcare, such as improving hospice and palliative care and ending unwanted medical treatment.
authorize and implement medical aid in dying to allow mentally capable adults in their final weeks or months of a terminal disease to advance the time of death and end unbearable suffering.
It’s our belief — and our experience for the past 30 years — that the path to change starts with individual supporters.Learn more. Read or download About Compassion & Choices, a concise overview of our mission and current areas of work.
