The 48 Value statements in the wishes activity have been compiled to encourage conversations around one’s values and preferences for your care at End of Life.
Having a conversation about your values prior to stressful situations enables family and your medical treatment decision maker to be informed to enable them to act on your behalf if you can no longer speak for yourself.
These value statements have been designed as a prompt to be used individually or within a group to assist in conversation.
Recognising people’s values and preferences for end of life care, and encouraging these to be recorded can help reduce stress for families and your medical treatment decision maker at the time of deterioration and serious illness.
The most important thing is to have the conversation.
