How we want to die and what happens after we have, is one of the biggest conversations that we aren’t having. Deciding end of life is a crucial part of our healthcare survivorship plans as well as our lives as human beings. Whether you are close to the end of your life or not, leaving end of life decisions up until it is too late costs us control over an important time in our lives.
Where would you like to die? Who do you want to write your obituary? How do you want your family and friends to celebrate your life? What would you like to happen to your body once you’ve died? How would you like your belongings and wealth to be distributed?
Each of these decisions require love, attention, and care to sift through. Each is a personal decision, better made by you than by any one else. Starting these conversations can be difficult though, in a society that shies away from conversations about death and planning end of life.
