Advance Life Planning
Everyone should have an advance directive, regardless of age or health conditions. Not only is advance planning a valuable reflection on what is important to you in regard to your end of life care, I've found it helps people reflect on their values and priorities in general.
Advance life planning is also a wonderful way to care for your loved ones as they are caring for you at the end of your life. Since you have made your wishes for end of life care and final arrangements clear, no one has to worry about not knowing what you would have wanted. Saying goodbye to a loved one is always hard, but an advance directive helps to ease the stress of the many decisions that need to be made during the death and dying process.
