Having a death plan enables you to be able to discuss your end of life openly and honestly with your closest loved ones. Planning ahead can help make things easier for your partner and family when you’re nearing the end of life.
You can create a death plan at any point in your life, you do not need to be ill or at the end of your life to put things in place now for the future. Whether you are comfortable having discussions about death or you haven’t given it a second thought, creating a plan, if made in advance, can help ensure you receive the end of life care you want and deserve.
