Create an end-of-life plan

Many unique concerns might impact end of life care. If you become disabled or critically ill later in life, this planning protects those decisions you want respected and empowers those people you have appointed in key roles to take action.

End of life care planning addresses things such as:

  • Your medical preferences if you are unable to speak for yourself
  • Advanced purchases such as a pre-planned burial or funeral
  • Whether you want to stay at home on hospice or enter a facility, if needed

This involves creating a plan for what preferences you have on these and other issues as well as appointing the people you trust to make those decisions for you.
