Planning for the last chapter of life is a subject many of us would rather avoid. However, most of us will become seriously ill at the end of our lives, and the default treatment often leads to resuscitation, intubation, catheterization, and feed tubes. Some patients want every available technology; others do not. What’s important is that you decide for yourself what you want, speak with your loved ones, and write your wishes down.

- Decide how to choose a medical power of attorney
- Discuss wishes with loved ones and medical providers
- Complete advance directives
