This manual applies a supported decision-making approach to facilitating discussions with persons with I/DD about end-of-life decisions. Using plain language and helpful graphics, the manual breaks end-of-life decisions down into three areas: making personal requests, making medical treatment choices, and choosing an end-of-life advocate. In its appendix, it includes an easy-to-read, two-page advance directive form that can be used to memorialize the person with disability's wishes. It is available in Spanish, Korean, and Chinese and has a companion videos that demonstrate how to use this manual to facilitate discussions about values, goals, and treatment preferences at the end of life.
