Transition Planning Information

How to plan for Life Transition

Make choices regarding end-of-life care. Talk with your physician, family and those close to you about your preferences for care. This will help prevent a crisis situation when, inevitably, you need to transition to a new phase of life.

This process should result in a clear understanding of your wishes at the end of life and who would make decisions on your behalf. Document these decisions in an advance directive. If an illness or an accident resulted in your inability to communicate, your advance directive would provide your family and physicians with instructions so that your wishes would be known and respected.

Be aware that power of attorney designations, wills, trusts and other related documents are powerful legal instruments. It is recommended that you contact a private attorney for assistance with these and other serious legal matters.
