Randy & Sandy's Advance Care Plan

(Note: The pdf for the issue in which this article appears is available for download: BIFOCAL Vol. 35, Issue 4.)

Web video shorts on talking and planning how you want to die

Randy and Sandy are a light-hearted approach to much-needed conversations. They show that the most important talk we are not having is the one about how we want to die.

The 12 episodes engage in what’s real when it comes to dying care — advance directives are about being treated the way you want, conversations should happen long before that time comes and more than once, and that not talking about dying won’t stop the inevitable.

Several of the shorts introduce My Health Care Wishes an mHealth (mobile health) app for smartphones, distributed by the American Bar Association. The app stores and sends your advance directives and those of your loved ones “just in case,” addressing the rare availability of these documents when most needed.
