The Spanish-language version of the Next Steps guide, a companion to Cinco Deseos. The guide includes information on completing Cinco Deseos, talking to family members about completing a living will and discussing Cinco Deseos with your doctor. Included are exact words and phrases you can use to start these conversations. There’s also useful guidance on serving as a health care agent and being at the bedside of someone who is seriously ill.
