Advanced Care Planning. That's a phrase that you've likely heard before. And for many of you, it's something you've decided you'll just deal with later, but is it really something that you want to leave for later? It's not, but how do you start the uncomfortable end-of-life conversation with your loved ones? Nobody wants to talk about the end of life, right? It's hard. And it makes us confront emotions and feelings that we aren't quite ready for yet. But guess what? It's not as hard as you think it is. In this episode, we're going to introduce you to a tool that will guide you and your family through the process.
