I've been thinking a lot about what I might personally do this Dying to Know Day (Aug 8) as I'm not holding an event this year.
I am going to organise my Enduring Power of Attorney and my Medical Power of Attorney what fun!
If I'm suddenly incapacitated and cannot make decisions for myself while I am still alive, then I need to decide who I trust to be my attorneys, someone who can speak for me and understands my wishes.
Here's a great vid that explains how it works (for those in Victoria). It's not that hard to arrange, it's paperwork of course, but it's important paperwork :)
