When you have high blood pressure, your blood puts a lot of pressure on your artery walls. Over time, this can damage your arteries, heart and kidneys. You may not know these problems are happening.

Normal blood pressure should be below or around 120/80. Your provider can tell you what blood pressure is best for you. We can work with them to help you find ways to lower it or manage it.

End-of-life planning usually includes making choices about:
- The goals of care (such as whether to use certain medicines during the last days of life)
- Where and how you want to spend your final days
- Which treatments for end-of-life care you wish to receive
- What type of hospice or palliative care (care to help relieve pain and promote quality of life) you wish to receive
Deciding what end-of-life care you want ahead of time can lessen some uncertainty. Advance directives can help make your wishes clear to your family, health care providers or legal representative.
