Kentucky encouraging families to make end of life decisions now
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ)- Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services is encouraging families to talk about end of life healthcare decisions earlier in a person’s life.
It’s part of the state’s recognition of National Healthcare Decisions Day on Tuesday, April 16th.
“As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in our community are having thoughtful conversations about their healthcare decisions and making their wishes known,” said Shannon Gadd, Commissioner for the Department for Aging and Independent Living. “By having these discussions, you are giving your family a gift by not having to struggle with making difficult healthcare decisions.”
