End-of-Life Decisions

There are many ways to prolong life through advanced treatments, yet the potential benefits also may bring difficult choices for patients and families. Prolonging life is not always what’s best for you or your loved one, but this is still a decision no one takes lightly.

As your health declines, medical decisions often become more difficult. We hope this booklet will help make end-of-life decisions easier. You will need to consider how medical care will affect your life, comfort and death.

We suggest after reading this booklet, you discuss these matters with your family, doctor, clergy or other informed persons. These people should be aware of your wishes to assist you in decision making.
