ELDERCARE SERIES: 

An "advance health care directive" lets your physician, family and friends know your health care preferences, including the types of special treatment you want or don't want at the end of life, your desire for diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and organ donation.

By discussing these with your elder family members (and considering your own options) early, you can ensure the quality of life that is important to the individual and avoid having the family "guess" or make critical medical care decisions for you under stress or in emotional turmoil. 

In this episode Bobbie discusses how to make key end-of-life decisions, how to designate the decision makers, and the important legal documents you and your family members need to have in place.
