What kind of medical care would you like if you were too ill or hurt to express your wishes?
Advance Directives are legal documents that allow you to spell out your decisions ahead of time.
In collaboration with the publishers of FIVE WISHES, Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice invites you to participate in a five-session webinar about this important document to make your end-of-life wishes known.
The person I want to make healthcare decisions for me when I can’t make them myself. Wish One lets you choose who can do the best job carrying out your wishes when you can’t speak for yourself.
My wish for the kind of medical treatment I want or don’t want. Wish Two is a living will. It lets you put in writing the kind of medical treatment you want—or don’t want—if you become seriously ill and can’t communicate with anyone.
My wish for how comfortable I want to be. Wish Three helps you describe what would create a comforting
environment for you at the end of your life.
My wish for how I want people to treat me. Wish Four lets you describe how you want to be treated
so you can maintain your dignity.
My wish for what I want my loved ones and health care team to know. Wish Five gives you a chance to tell others what you want them to know about you, how you want to be remembered, and express other things that might be in your heart, like forgiveness.
