Living With More Than One Health Problem
Making Your Wishes Known
When you have many health problems, serious problems can come up. With them come hard decisions. For example, you might have to decide whether or not to use a Reference ventilator Opens New Window or whether you want to continue treatment.
It's best to be prepared in advance. Write down what treatment you want or don't want, and find someone who can speak up for you in the event that you can't. This will make things easier for both you and your loved ones.
