Discuss, Decide & Document

Are you prepared if you or your loved ones get seriously ill with COVID-19? Have you documented your wishes in an advance care plan so those taking care of you know your wishes if you become too sick to speak for yourself? If you’re the medical decision-maker for a loved one, do they have a Practitioner Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment​ (POLST) form and is it up to date? Now is the time to talk with your loved ones about who is designated as your healthcare proxy and what matters most to you if you should become very sick. POLST is designed for seriously ill or older people who are at high-risk of a life-threatening medical event.
