It is difficult to talk to your loved ones about dying, but the best time to discuss end-of-life care is when everyone is still healthy and well.I’m Paula Jackson, a critical care nurse at Centegra and chair of the Northwest Branch of the Chicago End-of-Life Care Coalition. Join me in celebrating National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16 by creating a living will and durable power of attorney for healthcare.
