A great way to celebrate is to get started on making your own decisions...in advance. Advanced directives are a great way to make your wishes known regarding the care you would like to receive at the end of life. It also allows you to appoint someone you trust as your health care proxy, or durable power of attorney, who can make decisions for you if you can't make them yourself.
Five Wishes is another document that functions like an advanced directives, but takes it a step further to address physical, emotional, and spiritual decisions.
Don't forget to have some fun and play games while you celebrate! Go Wish is a card game from Coda Alliance that you can play with your loved ones and health care professionals to make your wishes known.
If you haven't done advanced directives already, what better time than National Health Care Decision Day?
