Author Mary Lynne Knighten explains, “Many times, worry about their condition, fear regarding the diagnosis or prognosis, and anticipatory grief concerning loss of function, independence, or even life weighs heavily on their minds as they seek care for their health needs.” By including a trusted person in healthcare decisions, patients have a true advocate—someone who can ask questions, provide answers, and make decisions when the patient can’t.
