The Questions for Aging/End of Life

These questions are directed by what you have decided are your personal goals.  I am just choosing a couple to start our thinking process!

Example: Do you want to “everything” done to sustain your life, even when you have a terminal illness?

Example: Where do you want to live when you are at the end of your life? Home? Care Facility?

Example: What do you think “being kept comfortable” looks like for you?

Example: Do I have financial resources that could be spent on private needs for a month? How much could that be? In the year 2011 it will take $6,000.00 to $10,000.00 per month to be cared for in a facility or at your home.

Is this a good start to”The Questions?”  What are your questions????
