Questions to consider for end of life planning

The following information provides some questions you should consider before and after your death. Only you can answer these questions. So start having a conversation with family and friends today. Don’t wait, otherwise it may be too late.


Before Your Death


If you haven’t already considered your end of life health care options, you may want to think about:

  • What do you want for your end of life health care?
  • Would your loved ones know what you want for your end of life health care?
  • Who would make decisions about your end of life health care if you were no longer able to?


You may have other more specific considerations, such as:

  • When the time comes, where would you like to receive health care (home, hospice, hospital)?
  • What does your end of life health care look like? Have you spoken with a health professional about it?
  • Who would you want to be with you when you die?
  • What would be in your advance care plan and/or health directive?
  • Who will you choose as your decision maker if you are unable to speak for yourself?

After Your Death

  • Do you want to be buried or cremated?
  • How much money should be spent on your funeral?
  • How would you like to say your final goodbye?
  • How do you want to be remembered?


You may have other more specific considerations, such as:

  • When the time comes, who would you like to be your funeral guardian?
