Life Altering Physical Considerations
We talked through issues ranging from a sudden but temporary incapacitation (car accident) to a diagnosis with a terminal outcome (late-stage cancer). And why taking the wide range of scenarios into account is important. Advance Care Planning is not just having “I’d like a natural death” in writing. We mention the available tools, questions to ask yourself, and tips for having the important discussions with those who will have a say in your medical decision making.
Disclaimer: We are not lawyers, and this shouldn’t be taken as legal advice. And remember that we’re usually referring to how things are in BC, Canada, so things might be different where you are.
