You have many choices in life, including those choices about how you want the end of your life to be. It is important to think about your options in advance and share your views with your loved ones. Then, when the time comes to make decisions, if you can't decide for yourself, your loved ones will know that they are doing what you would have wanted. Making these decisions ahead of time will help your care providers know how to take care of you.
At Heartland, we understand that making health care decisions can be difficult and confusing. It requires thoughtful planning to assure your individual values and preferences will be respected. The time to discuss your views about your choices is before a crisis or severe illness occurs.
