Five Wishes: Personal, Medical, Emotional, Familial, Spiritual
Life is fragile and the unexpected can happen any day. One only has to read the daily newspaper or tune into the news to see that. When it comes to health care, preparing for the unexpected is more than important regardless of age – it’s essential. “Five Wishes” is more than just a document. Five Wishes is a complete approach to discussing and documenting individual care and comfort choices. It’s about connecting families, communicating with healthcare providers, and showing what it means to care for one another.
• What kind of care do I want?
• Who will make decisions if I cannot?
• How do I want to deal with life support?
• What should my loved ones know?
• What if I’m in a coma?
• How comfortable do I want to be?
• How do I want to be cared for?
• What should my doctor know about me?
