What’s on Your New Year’s Resolution List?
The new year is the PERFECT time to check off the list of things that need to get done.
This year, while visiting with family and friends, add a few simple questions to your conversations: “If you had an accident, who would you want to speak for you?” “Do they know that and do they agree?” “Would anyone object?” “What would you want them to know?” And, most importantly, “could a doctor or nurse find proof in a time of crisis that this is your wish and know how to contact that person(s)?”
If you’re like most people, the answers are: “I don’t know,” “I’ve no idea,” “Yes, I know exactly who would object,” and the one we hear the most: “I’ve no idea who any doctor would know who I want contacted or how to reach them!”
