NHN #4: Making Choices
The most important aspects of life planning and end-of-life preparation should begin well before we enter the final stages of our lives. Unless we carefully and deliberately plan and express our wishes in writing and in the appropriate legal format, there is no guarantee that our wishes will be correctly interpreted and honored. As we get older, there are two important things we must do. First, give ample consideration as to the way we want our assets managed if we should become sick or incapacitated and are no longer able to manage ourselves. We must also consider the way we want our assets distributed upon our death. Secondly, give ample consideration to the way we want our health managed if we are not able to manage it ourselves. It is to these choices that this publication is directed.
