COVID-19 has given many Americans a new awareness of their own mortality and raised the relevancy of end-of-life planning. With that awareness is a new set of challenges: concern over whether a ventilator will be available if you need it; confusion over treatment options; and concerns about dying in complete isolation from your family — exactly the death many of us have always feared most.
To help sort through these confusing topics, Compassion & Choices is hosting a series of webinars to discuss these topics and more. We’re hoping to help people navigate care preferences at life’s end, in order to realize a dignified death given existing laws and to ultimately Finish Strong. As part of that series we have created these resources to answer some questions you may have about end-of-life care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
