MY LIFE.  MY WAY. 

A GUIDE TO ADVANCE CARE PLANNING


(presented by Middletown Senior Center & Hospice)


     This is a great opportunity to ensure that you and your family are prepared in case of a health crisis or terminal medical diagnosis. 


     Whether you’re 35, 55 or 85, it’s a good time to ensure that you and your family are prepared in case of a health crisis or terminal medical diagnosis. 

 

     Deciding the kind of  health care you want at the end of your life is called Advance Care Planning, and it’s the greatest gift that you can give to your loved ones, as well as yourself.

 

     Most people say they would prefer to die at home, yet only about one-third of adults have an advance directive expressing their wishes for end-of-life care.  

 

     Advance Care Planning is making formal plans for the kind of health care you would want at the end of your life.  (Not a pleasant topic, but it’s best to be as prepared as possible.)  It means knowing your treatment options and your values, talking with your loved ones, and recording your wishes.

 

     Who do you trust enough to make the important “at the end of life” decisions for you:  feeding tube or not; home or not; health care facility or not; life support or not; funeral arrangements including cremation or none.  Where is your will?  You do have one, DON’T YOU???    Bring your “trusted friend(s) or relative(s)”.
