Consider what you’ll do in future if you get sick. You may have a retirement account and a will prepared, but determine what you want done if you lose your health.

Advanced care planning lays out how much care you want, what kinds of treatment you prefer, and what your wishes are if treatment doesn’t pan out.

A living will is useful in case of accident or terminal disease. Power of attorney determines who you prefer to make decisions when you cannot make them for yourself.

Listen as Dr. Adil Akhtar joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss legal and care planning for end of life.
