As a Nevada Estate Planning Attorney I know how difficult it is for families to talk about serious illness and death. That’s why so few people do it. But it’s important. That’s why there’s a growing movement to get more of these conversations going among families and friends — and to help more people get control over the kind of medical care they want at the end of their lives. A website was recently launched to reach a wide audience and help simplify what can seem like a daunting process. The website can be found at https://www.prepareforyourcare.org/.
The goal of the site is to assist you with the creation of an “action plan.” Issues addressed include choosing a medical decision maker, deciding what matters most in life, choosing flexibility for your decision maker, telling others about your wishes, and asking doctors the right questions. Even if you have already executed a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions, you should gain some valuable insight from this site.
