Guest Report - Making End Of Life Health Care Decisions


A recent national survey indicated that Americans are more likely to talk to their children about drug use and sex than about their end of life wishes. Without underestimating these discussions it is equally important to have conversations about wishes at end of life.

Talking about end of life does not have to be uncomfortable. Tuesday, April 16 is National Health Care Decision Day. Ministry Door County Medical Center, along with other national, state and community organizations, are leading a massive effort to highlight the importance of advanced healthcare decision making. Advance Directives clarify your choices about the types of care you may or may not want at end of life.

As a participating organization, Ministry Door County Medical Center’s Chaplains and Social Workers are available Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM to answer any questions you may have or to assist you in completing these documents. Call 743-5566 to set up an appointment with one of our social workers or chaplains, or simply stop by our registration desk and pick up the forms and complete them in the privacy of your own home. After completion please make sure your health care providers and loved ones have copies of the documents. Don’t make your loved ones guess on what you would or would not want at end of life.

And remember the 3 D’s -- DISCUSS, DECIDE, DOCUMENT.
