Covid-19 is a strong reminder of the importance of having an Advance Directive (AD).
Take this opportunity to think about what is important to you and what your wishes are..
Based on your wishes, it's imperative to put your health care decisions in writing. This way, if there is an emergency, the doctors, your family and your health care agent will know what your wishes are.
"What gives you joy and meaning in life? What makes you get out of bed in the morning? The answer is different for everyone — sometimes wildly so — which is why it's important to have your own answers to apply to the circumstances you might find yourself in".
Be proactive and empower yourself with knowledge. Assign a Health Care Agent to follow your wishes and have many conversations with family members so there is no confusion.
