Communicating Your Wishes

Posted on July 7th, 2020

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization offers free downloadable resources to help answer your questions about Advanced Directives and having conversations with loved ones and healthcare providers. See the link below to find out more.

We know that decisions about end-of-life care are personal and guided by your values and beliefs. Talking with your loved ones, your healthcare providers, and even your friends are all important steps to make your wishes known. These conversations will relieve loved ones and healthcare providers of the need to guess what you would want if you are ever facing a healthcare or medical crisis.

While it can be difficult to initiate these conversations, ultimately, they can be an invaluable gift to those you love and those providing medical care. Click on this link to download the NHPCO’s “End-of-Life Decisions” booklet, or call our admit team for more information at 360-814-5550.
