Supported Decision-Making


Your choices. Your decisions. Our expertise. 

Life can surprise us with unanticipated events. Being prepared means knowing your medical, financial and legal wishes will be honored no matter what happens. With LSS’ Supported Decision-Making services, you can make your own decisions — now and in the future.  

With LSS’ Supported Decision-Making services, your medical decisions and legal and financial affairs can be handled in one place. You can relax knowing that, with one organization handling your affairs, your most important decisions are being made according to your direction and with the most up-to-date information regarding your situation. 


Why Choose LSS for Supported Decision-Making?
