Our family conversations about advanced directives took place early enough to allow everyone (parents and children) to think clearly about and express their wishes. The main goal that helped frame these decisions was defining the difference between "living" and merely "existing". Modern medicine has made many advances over the years, which is good. But, it also causes more families to struggle with scenarios where loved ones are no longer enjoying a quality of life. From personal experience, I can attest that having these advanced directive documents prepared and accessible prior to reaching this time is a valuable and comforting piece for the family, especially the POA and/or trustee.
