As they say, "nothing is certain except for death and taxes." Maybe that is why April 16th, the day after tax day, is National Healthcare Decision Day.

National Healthcare Decision Day is an effort to encourage you to designate someone to help you make decisions about your healthcare when you cannot do so. Through your Health Care Power of Attorney, you designate an "agent" to make decisions for you.

Your Health Care Agent steps in when you are in an accident and likely to recover. He/she also helps during the end stages of your terminal illness.

But your agent needs your guidance. And you will want to give your agent peace of mind if he/she has to make a difficult decision.

Now is the time to execute your Health Care Power of Attorney. And then have a conversation with your agent.

What conversation? For example:

1. Do you have a strong preference to die at home if it is at all possible?

2. If you could plan it today, what would the last day or week of your life be like? Where would you be? Who would be present? What would you be doing? What would you eat if you could eat? What would be your final words or last acts?

3. Are there any medical treatments that you fear? Does this relate to the possibility of pain? Loss of dignity while undergoing the treatment? Being alone? Being overly-sedated or in a lingering state of unconsciousness?

It is a tough conversation. But it is a meaningful conversation. You will learn a lot about yourself. You will also walk away from the conversation with a deeper bond with your loved ones. I know I did.

Post derived from our National Healthcare Decision Day (Week) official blog post. We outline more example questions and take a deeper dive in the post, let us know what you think! - rebeccamasonlaw.com/2019/04/16/its-national-healthcare-decision-week/
