A way to live life to its fullest and the best way to avoid an overmedicalized death.
I laugh at myself because like you I plan for every emergency. I always get an aisle seat on the plane, search the nearest exit and am prepared for the flight attendant’s direction to bail on cue. I have my emergency backpack ready to throw in the car in case of a wildfire. I have duct tape and plastic sheeting to shelter in place in the event of nuclear disaster. And when I lived in California, I knew every gas shut-off valve in my neighbourhood, with a wrench at the ready, in case of an earthquake.
Needless to say, I have had an Advanced Directive, Medical Power of Attorney, Power of Attorney, and Will in place since 2005!
Regardless of a fast or slow death scenario, planning will:
Every adult …. rich or poor …. family or single …..sick or healthy,
should have an end of life plan!
We have designed the Dying Your Way website and DYW Portal Program to guide you through the end of life decision making and creating that end of life plan that can easily be shared when the time comes.
Take the plunge. It is time well spent!
