Brenda O’Donnell talks with Sheila McKay Vaughn and Scott Selis about Advanced Directives and why you should have them and how they can benefit everyone not just those in hospice.

What are Advanced Directives?  Effectively they are legal documents to  describe your end-of-life care ahead of time.  Though this isn’t limited just to a “living will” it can also include traditional wills, power of attorny, and similar things so that you are properly cared for the event you can voice your own desires.

These are important for everyone because even something random like a car accident or similar can make these vitally important.  These are not just about staying on life support or not, but about making your loved ones lives easier with financial matters and similar issues.
