An article on CNN about more people dying in their homes rather than a hospital quotes Deborah Waldrop, who studies end-of-life decision-making. "I cannot emphasize enough the point of having these conversations, not just what kind of care you want in later stages of an illness, but also what the person's thoughts are about where they want to be,” Waldrop said. "Honestly, some of my worst moments in practice is when someone tells me 'I don't know what she wants, we never talked about it.’”
