You may have to make some important decisions regarding the treatment of your loved one if he or she is unable to communicate. When considering your options, please think about:
- What the patient has said in the past about medical treatments.
- What the patient has said in the past when someone else was seriously ill.
- What you think the patient would say if he or she could join us in the discussions.
- Who will be making the healthcare decisions for the patient (Healthcare Proxy) if necessary.
