All of us will come to our last breath, and many will get there due to illness. Yet, the difficulty of talking about end of life prevents many people from planning how and when they will receive medical support.

Advanced Healthcare Directives allow you to document your wishes for medical treatment and spiritual care at the end of life. These documents allow you to state what you would want if you are unable to speak for yourself and designate someone else to speak on your behalf.

The Bay Area Jewish Healing Center Rabbis are available to help you think through these important decisions, and have difficult conversations with family members and friends about what you would want for comfort and peace through individual rabbinical counseling.
