"Five Wishes" Living Will Presentations

Five Wishes has become America’s most popular Living Will because it is written in everyday language and helps start and structure important conversations about care in times of serious illness.

The Aging with Dignity Organization has created a document entitled “Five Wishes.”  The first two wishes deal with assigning a proxy to make health care decisions for you if you are unable to and telling your loved ones what your health care wishes are.  The last three wishes are the unique part of the document.  Wishes three, four, and five deal with our spiritual, emotional and personal desires.  “I want to be in the sunshine, listening to familiar music, in my pajamas, not a hospital gown, with my teeth brushed.” 

Nancy Curtis, a Chaplain in Training at Robert Wood Johnson Hamilton (Classis of Delaware-Raritan), has created a presentation to help individuals work their way through the Five Wishes.  The presentation is an hour in length and Ms. Curtis is able to assist participants with their own Five Wishes at the end of the presentation. 

If you would like Ms. Curtis to come to your congregation and present the Five Wishes presentation, you may contact her at ncurtis198@aol.com or 908-304-2627.  There is a cost of $1.00 per booklet.
