In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
April 15 is, of course, tax day. That is where part of Benjamin Franklin's favorite quote comes into play. But April 16 may play a part as well, as it is the 8th Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day.
There is always a plan for what happens to you if you cannot speak for yourself. If you have not talked to your family, friends and loved ones, then that plan is often just chaos. I have two decades of stories about families that cannot agree on what to do, and cannot even agree there is a problem. Children who never forgive each other for their actions, and parents regretting not knowing what their children wanted.
Chaos is a not a plan. So the time is now to get started. NHDD even has a way to get started:
Take control of your health care decisions, and start on April 16!
