When you or a loved one is diagnosed with serious illness, deciding what to do next is never easy. You have so many questions, and yet, you’re not sure what you need to know. You may feel powerless, overwhelmed, sad or angry — or all of those at once.
Begin by asking yourself or your loved one, “What’s most important?”
Questions like these can help start a conversation, and determine a future roadmap to true goals of care:
- What do you value most about your life?
- How long do you want to stay in the hospital?
- How much pain is too much?
- Do you want to pursue every possible cure for your serious illness?
- Would you stop curative treatments if they were too stressful or unsuccessful, and opt for comfort instead?
- What do you hope for most regarding your death or the death of a loved one?
- Do you want to be with your family when you die?
- Do you want to die at home?
Make sure your care team understands these goals
