Mission

Mortality is part of being human. Our mission is to address human mortality with respect, compassion, and dignity. The Completed Life Initiative, founded in 2019, was created in an effort to promote self-determination and dignity at the end-of-life. The notion of what it means to live life until its completion – hence, “Completed Life” – arose from our Founder’s desire to empower individuals to have full control over their end-of-life experience. What does it mean to live a completed life? How does one communicate their end-of-life wishes to loved ones, to ensure that it unfolds as desired? How do we empower individuals to live as fully as possible, assured that their end-of-life wishes will be respected? How do we relieve human suffering at the end-of-life while honoring personal dignity?

Healthcare Proxy Helpline

The Health Care Proxy Helpline is a FREE service created to provide support to New Yorkers as they complete the New York State Health Care Proxy form. In this time of COVID-19 running rampant in New York City, Long Island, and Upstate New York, making sure your loved ones know your exact wishes ahead of time is critical. When medical crisis arises and you can no longer speak or communicate for yourself, it is essential to designate someone you know and trust as your Health Care Proxy so that he or she can act as your Health Care Agent and communicate your wishes when the unexpected happens.

When you sign up for an appointment, you’ll have the chance to speak with one of our Advance Directive Advocates, who will guide you through the form, answer any questions you may have, and who can serve as electronic witnesses when you sign the form. Once you schedule your appointment, you can select a 30-minute counseling call, a 15-minute witnessing call if you have already completed a health care proxy form and only need it witnessed, or a 45-minute call that includes both services.

Please note that our Advance Directive Advocates cannot offer legal or medical advice, serve as your healthcare agent, or tell you what to write on your Proxy form. Only someone whom you know — whether a trusted friend or family member — may become your Health Care Agent.
