5 Wishes is a living will document published by a nonprofit agency called Aging with Dignity.  It’s a simple document that asks five questions about what a person wants during a life-threatening illness.  The questions cover medical care, but they also cover mental and spiritual issues as well.  

Here’s what the 5 questions cover:

  • The person I want to make care decisions for me when I can’t
  • The kind of medical treatment I want or don’t want
  • How comfortable I want to be
  • How I want people to treat me
  • What I want my loved ones to know

Helen & Jerry cover the 5 Wishes tool, and how it can help guide people to make their end of life wishes known to the significant people in their life.  Find out more about it at  

Be sure and look at our website for more advance planning resources.  There's now a separate page for advance planning resources on The Heart of Hospice website.
