While certainly not one of the most comfortable conversations to have, discussing End of Life Options is very important. It is important for your loved ones to understand what your wishes are for your health care and funeral plans.
Advance Care Planning
Technology has allowed people to live longer, but also creates some hard choices. Talk to your loved ones about your feelings about artificial life support, including nutrition and hydration. What things would you the doctors do? What things do you not want? These are tough questions, but think about what’s important to you now. Communicate what your “ideal” death would look like. Let the people around you know so that they can make decisions for your care with those things in mind.
