Advance Death Care Directive on a Desk

Published by Sacred Crossings, this 26-page digital download allows you to document your final wishes concerning the care of your body after death, your funeral arrangements and your final disposition.

It also includes information for your death certificate; legal, financial and medical information and pages for reflection to help you write your ethical will.

A signature page formally acknowledges your final wishes.

“When the time comes to die, make sure that all you have to do is die!” – Jim Elliot

Whereas your Health-Care advocate is someone assigned to make decisions regarding your end-of-life health care, the Death Care advocate is the person assigned to honor your final wishes after you die.

After completing your Directive, be sure to share your wishes with your Death Care advocate.

We recommend

that you create a ‘Death File’

Your death file contains all the documents your family will need when you are ready to choose hospice or if you should die unexpectedly.

Click on the link below for a free download checklist of your death file documents.

When your file is complete, place it somewhere in your home where your next-of-kin can find it easily when the time comes.

“Our family sat down and filled out our Death Care Directives together. The simple format made it easy to talk about the end-of-life issues that most of us had kept putting off dealing with. We got to know each other better in the process and even had some laughs. It feels good to have my wishes clearly in writing, and I’m happy to have that from my other family members as well.” 

Dahra P., Portland

“This is a great booklet! I didn’t want to talk about these things but it was easy to write them down. I feel a sense of peace and relief now I’ve filled this out.”

Helga, UK

“I am a healthy 43-year-old, but I want to take responsibility for my own funeral plans and personal death care wishes, so my family won’t have to. The Death Care Directive is the perfect tool for this.”

Thea P., Los Angeles

“I got a Death Care Directive booklet from Sacred Crossings for my father who is in failing health. After going through it with him, I was so impressed and pleased at how it covered things I never would have thought of, I got one for my step-mother and two more for myself and my husband! Kind of fun to fill out, and it gives us peace of mind to know we have all the information and personal wishes that I or any of my family might need when the time comes. What a gift!”

KJ, Portland, Oregon

“May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.”

– John O’Donohue
