As of today (or earlier), your taxes are most likely filed. Good news or bad news, they're done and there's no more living with the unknown. Phew!
None of us loves living with uncertainties and unknowns. So, some time not too long ago, someone decided that we ought to face the only two absolute certainties in life – Death and Taxes – head on in the same month, one day after the other!
Hence, National Healthcare Decisions Day, tomorrow, on April 16th, the focus of which is "to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning". Getting your end-of-life paperwork in order is the one vehicle we have for managing some of the uncertainties about this time of life.
Since it's often difficult to find the "right" time to bring up the subject of end-of-life wishes, go ahead and use NHDD as your excuse to bring up the subject that you might be avoiding with your family and other loved ones. How's this for an opener? "Can you believe that someone thought that it would be a good idea to follow tax day with 'death' day?"
