April 16th is Honoring Choices Day. We all hope that we don’t have to use a healthcare directive or a POLST for ourselves or others but having one is extremely important.

It also relieves family of having to make a decision they may be unsure of or uncomfortable making. This timely link will take you to a special page that reviews possible COVID-19 related choices to think about.
