How about making a New Year's resolution that you don't have to stick to for weeks and months?
One that can be done in the first week of 2017....
A resolution that you can check off your list of things you know you should do...
Ask (at least) one family member how they want to live at the end of their life.
That's it! You don't have to get mired down in medical scenarios or treatment options. Just ask what's important to them. How they envision it. Talk about what they DO WANT instead of what they don't.
You'll likely learn something you didn't know about this person, and you will be doing the both of you a great service....and performing an act of love.
REMEMBER: A significant percentage (it ranges, depending on the research!) of those who have not had a conversation about their end of life health care wishes are waiting for someone else to start the conversation.
You can be the initiator for a loved one who might be waiting!
Life Matters Media aims to be the premiere provider of information, resources and support for all involved in end of life decision-making. Through fostering better communication, we will empower the ill, aged, caregivers, surrogates and medical providers to navigate this life phase with confidence and dignity.
By providing a platform for the sharing of information, resources, communication and experiences of those living their final days fully, the vision of Life Matters Media is to create a community for ones facing the end of life and for those that care for them. Ultimately, we seek to foster a greater understanding of the capacity that end of life decisions have to nurture the human spirit.
