Having the ConversationDifficult talk now avoids a harder decision later
In this video report on Fox channel WPTV, news reporter Carolyn Scofield says her family will always wonder if they made the right decision about her father's end-of-life care on Christmas Day.
That's why workers at Treasure Coast Hospice suggest having a living will or advance directive in place before you become sick or incapacitated.
"It's an enormous amount of pressure on a family member," Andrew Passeri, a member of the Board of Directors for Treasure Coast Hospice, says in this video. "What is the right decision? You're trying to make a life and death decision sometimes for another person in a way and that's hard to do."
