The first step in planning for your end-of-life care is thinking about your choices. As you begin to think about your end-of-life care choices, it is important to reflect on the following:
- What to ask your healthcare provider
- What health problems do you fear may affect you in the future
- What frightens you most about medical treatment
You need to plan for situations where you may become unexpectedly incapable of making your own decisions. Making these choices requires understanding the information, weighing the benefits and burdens from your perspective, and discussing your choices with your loved ones.
To help you as you think about these choices, download our planning guide.
Once you complete the planning guide, take the next step: start the conversation and talk with a loved one about your choices.
