End of Life Care
What kind of medical care would you want if you get too ill to express your wishes? Decisions about end of life care are difficult even when people are well. If a person is seriously ill, these decisions can seem overwhelming. Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to communicate your wishes to family, friends and healthcare professionals, and avoid confusion later on. You don’t have to have a terminal illness to express your end of life care wishes in writing.
