Justin Porter, Washington paramedic and registered nurse, urges us all to consider advance care planning in this lighthearted YouTube video.
He also provides in a Methow Valley News editorial an in-depth look at ensuring our loved ones are made aware of our wishes in the event we become ill, particularly during this time of COVID-19. He notes that “[b]eing clear with our wishes is what’s best for you, your family, and the healthcare system at large.”
Some of the questions Justin asks us to consider include:
- What efforts should be made to keep you alive?
- Is it important to you that every last intervention be attempted before allowing you to die?
- If we die, who will take care of the kids?
Find out the answers to these questions by reading Justin’s full editorial here.
