Thinking About Your Future
Have you ever thought about what would happen to you if you could not make medical care decisions for yourself? Who would make decisions for you? Would anyone know what you want?
Planning ahead involves many things. It takes time to think about your concerns and the documents you need.
Take time to consider
It is best to think about these questions while you are well. It is also important to share your feelings with those people who will speak for you, if you can’t. It helps to write down your wishes. The following booklets will guide you in this process.
There are many people and resources to help you. Talk to your doctor, nurse, or social worker, for support and guidance. Speak Up is also a good resource to help you plan ahead.
