Today is National Healthcare Decisions Day, the day to appoint someone to speak for you when you can no longer speak for yourself during a serious illness or the end of life.
Over the past six weeks, the Center for Practical Bioethics has been promoting this message in conjunction with Crossroads Hospice with 30 second commercials on KMBZ Radio and with a one hour program on the subject on April 7th.
Talk about it today with the person who will speak for you. For help, download a copy of Caring Conversations, a booklet that guides you through the conversation and provides legal documents to make it official.
Have "The Talk." You won't regret it.
