Summary
Advanced directives and living wills have improved our ability to dictate end-of-life care, but even these cannot guarantee us the dignity of a natural death. Designed by two sisters - one a doctor, one a lawyer - who draw on decades of experience, the five-step Compassion Protocol outlined here offers a simple and effective framework for leaving caretakers concrete, unambiguous, and legally binding instructions about your wishes for your last days
