Planning for end-of-life care before it becomes a worry is as important as all the other life plans you have made. Having a plan in place makes it easier for you, your doctor and your loved ones if you are unable to tell them your health care choices because of an injury or serious illness.
Every moment is precious – especially at the end-of-life. Starting the conversation early can ensure that your choices are heard. It also means that when time becomes short, it can be spent doing what you most enjoy and not making last minute decisions. Talk about your wishes while you are in good health so you will be prepared.
A health crisis can happen to anyone at any time. Don’t wait. Start the conversation today. It’s a gift.
