Posted by Dr. El - March 8, 2017 - Communication, End of life - No Comments

You’ve probably already heard that it’s important to have a healthcare proxy to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so. If you’re wondering who to choose as your healthcare proxy or what you’re supposed to do if someone has asked you to become their healthcare proxy, The Conversation Project and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement have put together a resource to help you.

How to Choose a Health Care Proxy & How to Be a Health Care Proxy can act as a guide to the process, including suggestions for how to discuss your choice with loved ones and how to advocate for the wishes of someone who has chosen you as their proxy.

Visit The Conversation Project for more information about how to discuss end of life care with loved ones. If you need personal guidance on eldercare matters, I’m available for eldercare coaching.
