Mel and Lisa discuss recent experiences, both as a caregiver and a patient. Lisa mentions a book, available from Bookshare and other sources. It is called Advance Directives, and deals with a number of end-of-life and healthcare decisions. Mel discusses the Five Wishes document, which can help individuals clarify their options.
They also discuss two helpful resources. The first is an article from AccessWorld: Advocating for Yourself in an Emergency Medical Situation. The second was developed by the Pennsylvania Council of the Blind’s Information Access Committee and is designed primarily for individuals to share with medical staff. The document consists of Best Practices for Healthcare Professionals with Patients who are Visually Impaired.
