Have A Conversation with Your Children

Please Schedule A Time to Discuss These Issues Before It's Too Late

If you or your spouse became incapacitated or can no longer take care of yourself in your home; what should your children do on your behalf?

If you were incapacitated or your doctor didn't think you would recover; what options should your children request from medical professionals?

Have you assigned someone to make important decisions for you if you were diagnosed with Alzheimer's and experience confusion and memory loss?

Have you decided on your last wishes and your funeral arrangements?

Do you have an Advance Health Care Directive in place? Does your family know where it is kept?
