End-of-life issues are difficult to think about, and although families should talk about them early when everyone is healthy, they often aren't discussed until a medical crisis occurs.
Below is a short informational video about "5 Wishes", an advance directives program adopted by Glendale Adventist Medical Center that helps family members express their end-of-life wishes. This video is followed by an episode of Healthline featuring the hospital's Chief Nursing Officer Gwen Matthews and Vice President of Medical Staff Dr. Dennis DeLeon. The two discuss end-of-life care with Gregory and Susanne.
Advance directives are legal tools that can help make sure your health care wishes are carried out if you can't speak for yourself. Request a free copy of 5 Wishes Booklet to be sent to you from Glendale Adventist Medical Center.
