Aging With Dignity
Aging with Dignity is a national non-profit organization with a mission to affirm and safeguard the human dignity of individuals as they age and to promote better care for those near the end of life. The life and work of Mother Teresa of Calcutta served as the inspirational foundation of Aging with Dignity.
Aging with Dignity introduced Five Wishes in Florida in 1997, and a year later, to the nation. Dubbed "the living will with a heart and soul," Five Wishes today meets the legal requirements in 42 states and has helped literally millions of people plan for and receive the kind of care they want. Five Wishes is unique among all other advance directives and living wills because it is user-friendly and easy to complete. The document is available in 26 languages and in Braille.
