Advance care planning
Spend some time thinking about your values, your spiritual beliefs, the type of care you'd prefer to receive, what being independent means to you, your view of dying, who should take care of you, whether you'd like to donate organs, and funeral preferences. Write down your choices in an advance directive.
Your advance directive should be copied and shared with your doctor, attorney, caregiver, and family/friends. Keep it in a safe, easy-to-find place, and review it from time to time for changes in your medical conditions, living situation, and preferences.
