Advance Care Planning

My partner passed away a few years ago. I have just retired recently. I do not have a son or daughter. I just have few friends and one distant relative. I have made a will, but what I am worried about is that when I am sick and there is no one to take care of me. I don’t know how to deal with the existing house where I live now... What should I do?

Recently, the elderly with chronic illnesses in my family was admitted to the hospital, but our family members were unable to visit him due to the epidemic. Fortunately, the elderly was discharged finally. We realise that we have never talked about kind of care he would like to take if his health deteriorates and his wish list . What should we do now?
