End of Life Planning

If asked, most of us would like to die peacefully in our sleep—likely with no warning. Or we would expect to suffer a devastating heart attack that results in sudden death. The reality is that most of us will experience a chronic health condition that has some aspect of deterioration—in physical ability and often affecting our energy and mental ability or concentration.

Our experience of end-of-life is changing—in part due to the aging of the population. It is the first time in history that so many people are living so long. The longer we live, the greater our chance of living with more than one chronic conditions.

If you want to plan for end-of-life, the key legal document in British Columbia is a Representation Agreement.


Securely register a copy of your end of life plans, documents, and consent forms with the Nidus Registry, a BC-based centralized digital repository with 24/7 access. Ensure you are prepared for a health crisis or other emergency.
