End of Life

No one knows when life will end. Taking the time to make advance preparations for this inevitability is both practical and necessary. Honest conversations about end-of-life planning and care may not be comfortable or easy, but they are important so you can ensure that your loved one’s wishes are honored. This section details the topics and documents you will need to consider, as well as the types of professionals who can help you put everything in place.

This is your chance to make plans for the time when your loved one will be unable to make his or her own medical decisions.
With hospice, comfort care is emphasized over aggressive treatment. The focus is on quality, rather than quantity, of life.
As a caregiver, you need access to important papers and knowledge of your loved one’s wishes as end of life approaches. Get everything organized in advance.
