Wishes Well-Spoken: Navigating Healthcare Directives with Rachel Schromen, Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney and Owner of Schromen Law, LLC

What steps have you taken to ensure your healthcare wishes are honored, especially in times when you might not be able to express them? This question often pushed to the back of our minds, is crucial for our peace of mind and for those we love.

We're honored to have Rachel Schromen with us today, an accomplished estate planning and elder law attorney, and the owner of Schromen Law, LLC. Recognized as one of the Top 3 Best Rated Estate Law firms in St. Paul, Rachel's professional work and her commitment to the community, as a volunteer as an end-of-life doula gives her a unique perspective to today's conversation.

In our conversation today, we'll talk about what a healthcare directive really means and why it’s vital. We'll hear Rachel's personal story with her father, explore the balance between legalities and emotions, and understand the practical steps of creating a healthcare directive. Whether you're looking to prepare for the future or navigating these decisions with a loved one, this conversation promises to be interesting, practical, and, most importantly, deeply human.
