End of Life Decisions

Ideally, everyone should make their views about end-of-life care known to their families long before any illness strikes. They should also take a few simple steps to ensure that their wishes are followed if and when a crisis does occur.

This involves drawing up:

        A living will of written instructions to make known what you want done if, for example, you are seriously ill and the only way you can be kept alive is by artificial means.

        A durable power of attorney, which authorizes a person of your choosing (usually a spouse or close relative) to make decisions for you if you become unable to do so for yourself.

Every state has different laws, it is important to indicate that if you are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, your preference is to receive hospice care.
