No sex or marriage question is too embarrassing because it’s time to ask EmpowHer’s sexuality expert Dr. Marty Klein, anything.
Here is a question that I know a lot of people have. “Dear Dr. Klein, my parents are getting older and I am afraid I am going to have to make some tough decisions ahead, which I am just not ready to do. How do I prepare myself?”
Dr. Marty Klein:
Well, you have already started to prepare yourself. You’ve started to envision that this lies ahead of you and that’s really excellent. Now, what you really want to do is you want to find out, have your parents made some of these difficult decisions? Do they have health care power of attorney? Have they said what they want done in case of very serious illness? Do they want to be put in the hospice? Do they want to have extraordinary measures used to keep them alive? Do they want to be buried after they die, do they want to be cremated? What do they want done?
