End of life planning

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we discuss the importance of letting your wishes be known to your loved ones when making end of life plans.

In the Tri-cities Dr. John Clay is talking to his patients about this topic.

It is wise to sit down and make your wishes known on how you would like to be cared for if you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

When patients are unable to make decisions for themselves often times arguments ensue amongst loved ones regarding "what mom or dad would want."

It's always a good idea to put your wishes in writing so there will be no questions when the situation arises.
