This is a very thorough, yet readable, set of articles developed by the American Bar Association to help you consider the issues when preparing an Advance Directive.
For over two decades, the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation has been working to advance shared decision making through research, policy, clinical models and patient decision aids. We believe that the only way to ensure high quality medical decisions are being made is for a fully informed patient to participate in a shared decision making process with their health care provider.
“Lynn Goehner and her caring team of geriatric case managers made it so I can be as independent as possible and age at home. They set up home care and helped me hire private caregivers. I have always been very independent and did not feel I needed a geriatric care manager or Eldercare Specialists’ help, but my family persisted. Lynn started, my diabetes and high blood pressure were causing me a lot of problems and instead of taking away my independence my health improved and they advocated for my independence. Her team of geriatric care managers advocated with the doctors and provided blood pressure and diabetes care management. By collaborating with my doctors, she was able to help get me on the right medications and get healthy again. Eldercare Specialists has helped me stay healthy, social and active. This year I turned 100, and I couldn’t have done it without Lynn and the Eldercare Specialists team.”
