Advance Care Planning--having 'healthy' conversations to empower you!
What are your thoughts and stories regarding difficult conversations. Advance care planning is where people discuss with their family members/friends their values, goals and wishes regarding end-of-life care. It's ongoing and, over time, evolving conversations.
It's harder to not talk about this part of our lives-- we spend 9months preparing for children, can we suggest making time to prepare for our end, stating what we want? Giving this gift to family or friends sharing whatever burdens we're willing or not willing to experience regarding life-sustaining treatments like CPR, intubation, antibiotics, artificial nutrition or dialysis.
