Infographic: The Importance of Talking About End of Life Care
What Do You Want?
雖然很不容易，但是您希望在生命末期獲得的醫療處置方法必須與其他人討論。 If you never bring up the topic of end-of-life decisions, and you were unexpectedly incapacitated and unable to speak for yourself, your medical wishes would never be known.
Despite the topic's importance, only 27% of Americans report having talked with their families about end-of-life care. The best way to make your medical wishes known is to create an advance directive and share it with your family and your doctor.
An advance directive is actually two legal documents that enable you to plan and communicate your end-of-life wishes. When you create your advance directive, you are being proactive about your medical care and sparing your loved ones from having to make difficult medical decisions in a time of crisis.
