TALK ABOUT END-OF-LIFE WISHES
Because of advances in medicine, each of us, as well as our families and friends, may face many decisions about the dying process. As hard as it might be to face the idea of your own death, you might take time to consider how your individual values relate to your wishes for end-of-life care.

By deciding what end-of-life care best suits your needs when you are healthy, you can help those close to you make the right choices when the time comes. This not only respects your values, but also may give your loved ones comfort. There may come a time when the efforts to slow an illness is not working and may become more harmful than helpful. If that time comes, choosing hospice may be the best solution. Being on hospice at the right time can truly enhance you and your loved ones well-being.

Learn more from our expert team as they host a series of education to ensure you and your loved ones have planned and prepared for end-of-life. No RSVP necessary.
