What if you were very ill and weren’t able to make decisions?  Would your family know what you would want, what your wishes would be?  Instead of waiting for a crisis, steps can be taken now to make sure your wishes are met.  Learn about Advance Care Planning with Dr. Brita Aramaki, geriatrician at The Queen’s Medical Center in this segment of Ask a Specialist on Wake Up 2day.
