As a New Yorker, you have the right to appoint someone you trust to make medical decisions for you if you become sick or injured and can't speak for yourself. By appointing someone you trust, and who knows what matters to you, your wishes can be known and honored. A new, free guide — A New Yorker's Guide to End of Life Planning, Options & Rights — provides everything you need to appoint your decision-maker, as well as comprehensive information on other types of planning and care. They also offer counseling at no cost for New Yorkers who need additional support with planning and navigating end of life care. Learn more at eolcny.org
