Serious Illness Task Force

LeadingAge Massachusetts has committed to helping the Massachusetts Coalition For Serious Illness Care reach its goal with our pledge to:

• Reach out to 100% of LeadingAge MA members to discuss and share how they can participate in this initiative
• Elicit and share promising practices around person-centered health care planning
• Ask each member to take at least one step in the coming year in support of the Coalition’s goal. We are very excited to be inviting our entire membership to advance the important work of the statewide coalition.
