Share Your Life Wishes
With Your Family

"I've seen families in tears of distress from not knowing what to do, and families in tears of relief when we found a patient's wishes documented... though they had never been discussed."

Douglas R. Wilson, MD

Queen of the Valley Medical Center Family Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Care

"The lack of advance care planning has become a widespread issue for families and for care providers across the United States,” says @Jack Cox, MD, chief medical officer of St. Joseph Health. “It is important that everyone—even children—talk about life’s journey, and that includes end-of-life situations or how we would want to be cared for when we are unable to talk for ourselves. Talking about our wishes is about knowing how to treat each other with dignity and honor.”
