What are the most common mistakes people make when completing advance directives?
When advance care planning, focus on what matters to you today. A common mistake is that people imagine themselves being at an imagined point in the future when their health and life may be different than it is right now. If something were to happen to you tomorrow, what would matter most? Remember, advance care planning is a process not an event. You can and should revisit your plans as your life and circumstances change.
