It's Time To Talk!

In life we prepare for everything… college, marriage, children, and retirement. Despite the conversations we have for these important milestones, rarely do we have conversations about how we want to be cared for at the end of our lives.

Talking is the single most important thing that you can do to prepare for the death of someone you love. While difficult, the end of life can be amazingly rich. Talking about this time makes a rich ending more likely. Often such conversations are avoided out of an understandable desire to spare each other’s feelings. They need not be.

Your local non-profit Visiting Nurse Associations and Home Health and Hospice agencies have prepared helpful materials and resources to help you start the conversation with your loved ones.
