Black Parents Aging Podcast

Dec 9, 2020

You want your family to be able to make the right decision should you experience a catastrophic accident or illness that leaves you unconscious or unable to communicate, right? But how do you make your wishes known? How do you communicate your choices in case of emergency treatments that will keep you alive? An Advanced Directive is the answer. By planning in advance, you get the medical care you desire while relieving your loved ones of the burden of making major medical decisions. Advanced Directives reduce the confusion and disagreements that that may come up during moments of grief and crisis. 


In today’s episode, Nicola talks in detail about Advanced Directives. She highlights why everyone needs one regardless of age, what to look for when naming your agent, and the nature of decisions that your agent can make. She also tackles some of the frequently asked questions. If you don’t have an Advanced Healthcare Directive for yourself or your aging parents, this episode is for you!


You’ll learn:


  • The purpose of a Healthcare Directive and why you should have one.
  • The difference between the Advanced Healthcare Directive and the HIPAA release form.
  • The advantages and disadvantages of a  healthcare directive.
  • and so much more!
