A Gift To Your Family
One of the most important legacies we can leave our loved ones is peace of mind.
We save for our children’s college educations. Save for retirement. Buy life insurance.
All so our families won’t have to worry about some things after we’re gone.
But what about before we’re gone?
Wouldn’t we all want to save our families the burden of making some of life’s most difficult decisions?
Making hard choices about end-of-life care can be one of the most emotionally wrenching circumstances for families to endure. Too many times, loved ones disagree, often passionately, about “what dad would have wanted.” The scars of these disagreements often endure long after family members are gone.
And yet each of us has the power to relieve our loved ones of those worries with the gift of an advance medical directive like the universal Advance Digital Directive (uADD™) from MyDirectives.com.
Advance medical directives make your end-of-life wishes clear to your medical caregiver and family members. You decide what kinds of medical treatments you wish to receive and who will make decisions for you if you are no longer able to speak for yourself. These simple steps—completing a uADD™ only takes a few minutes—can make an enormous difference to your family during one of their most difficult hours.
If you haven’t yet done so, consider having an end-of-life conversation with your family and giving them the gift of peace of mind today.
If you have had the conversation, how did it go? What was it like to think about your end-of-life wishes? We’d love to hear your story in the comments section.
