This is a resource I have been sharing with my clients for years.  As I tell them when we discuss the use of Advance Medical Directives, the only thing worse than not having an Advance Medical Directive and appointing an Agent under your Health Care Power of Attorney, is to appoint a Health Care Agent and never talk to them about how you would make medical decisions if you had the capacity to! This Toolkit helps you to plan by getting you to think about specific health care situations you may find yourself in.

End of life decisions are too important to put off.  Address them now, with your loved ones while you still have capacity to think about the situations and decide the path you want to take.  Don't leave the decision making to a spouse or children; it's your life and your values, make your decisions now so that if the time comes, your Agent will be carrying out your wishes!
