Just released: Jo Kline Cebuhar's 2015 Guide to Health Care Advance Directives!


Every day, 10,000 more Baby Boomers qualify for Medicare. It's the first wave of a demographic tsunami that will forever change aging and dying in America and it will impact the availability and delivery of health care services for each and every one of us.
The only way to maintain self-determination in a medical crisis or at life's end is with  effective advance directives. The most common reasons cited by the 72 percent of American adults without a Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care are 1) they don't have the information they need and 2) no one ever talked to them about it. Well, if that's the case, then done and done.

The 2015 Edition - The practical guide to Health Care Advance Directives is a user-friendly manual for creating and sharing effective health care advance directives that includes:
  • The Four Simple Steps: education, delegation, communication, documentation.
  • The practical relevance and shortcomings of today's advance planning tools.
  • Easy-to-grasp explanations of legal and medical terminology.
  • Current laws and court decisions regarding death and dying in America.
  • The importance of a health care proxy and how to choose the most qualified advocate.
  • Lightbulb moments! -- tips and shortcuts for effective advance health care planning.
If you don't have advance directives--or already have them but have no idea what they mean--the right time to make an effective advance health care plan is while you still can.
