Since we never know what may happen on any given day and life can bring unexpected twists and turns, it can be difficult to know what decisions may need to be made. Medical issues sometimes arise that create confusion and uncertainty for patients, their families, and medical staff. Everyone wants to do the right thing – but in some cases, it’s not always clear. A little planning now will save those dearest to your heart unneeded stress later. The best time to talk about the type of medical care you may or may not want is when you don’t need it.

· Recognize the importance of choosing the right person to communicate your wishes if you are ever unable to do so.
