What are Advanced Directives and Living Wills?
When it comes to end-of-life care, one advanced planning conversation can make all the difference. It has become increasing important to begin conversations before end-of-life care decisions need to be made. This will ensure that priorities and preferences for end-of-life care are known, documented and can be honored in the hospital.
By having end-of-life conversations in advance, you can reduce the fear and stigma around talking about dying and allow you to consider what’s important to you.
There are resources that can help you learn how to talk to others about your wishes, review healthcare planning decisions, resources and documents, learn with whom to share their healthcare planning documents, and when to review and update these documents.
