Questions About the End-of-Life

If you or someone you love is seriously ill, consider using these questions as a starting point. You might want to answer them first by yourself, and then discuss them with your loved ones, doctor, and clergy.

  • What do you value most in life? What makes life worth living?
  • How satisfied are you with what you have achieved in life? What goals do you have for the future?
  • What do you fear most?
  • Who would you want to make your health care decisions if you could not speak for yourself?
  • What are your spiritual and cultural beliefs about serious illness, dying and death?
  • How do you want to live at the end of your life?
  • When would you want medical treatment to offer comfort rather than prolong life?
