Caregiving includes making sure you have the right legal and medical documents organized in one place so that your loved ones will be able to easily find and access them if something happens to you.
It is never too early to start planning for your own future care. Ideally, you should start thinking about your care options and preferences when you are still healthy and able to make decisions for yourself.
The sooner you take charge of the process and let your wishes be known, the lower the risk of your wishes not being respected if you become unable to make decisions in the future.
Everyone should have an end of life plan because it provides you peace of mind in knowing that your loved ones will know what you want, and what to do, when the time comes. It can also prevent confusion over decisions that need to be made.
Making your final wishes known is a way to take charge of your own life and death.
