Step two: Learn about what kinds of medical choices Coronavirus patients and their families are commonly asked to make, and talk about what you would choose with your loved ones.
This can be an intense experience, but it’s also empowering. I am positive that you’re not starting to think about these things completely from scratch; most people generally have clear ideas about what kinds of medical interventions they would and would not accept, and what quality of life means to them. So, you’re already on your way! When you learn about common Coronavirus medical scenarios, you can have gentle,targeted and effective discussions with your loved ones and your power of attorney. (Ps: did you read my last post about how important it is to designate a power of attorney? Click here to read). You can let them know specifically what interventions you would want, and where you draw “lines in the sand.”
