Let Me Help YOU Take The FEAR Out of Talking About These Topics!

As A Medical Provider, Why Do I Need To Be Educated About Hospice Care?

  • Baby Boomers – Born early 1940’s to 1964 - 10,000 turn 65 years old every single day
  • Baby Boomers are now called “The Silver Tsunami”
  • Providers will be having many end of life conversations in the coming years due to our aging population.
  • Doctors do not like to talk about end of life care. They feel like a failure if they cannot cure the illness. The reality is, however, we are all going to die one day so we MUST get comfortable with these conversations.

As A Patient or Care Giver, Why Should I Talk About My Health Care Wishes?

  • It is the greatest gift you can give your family and loved ones.
  • No more arguments among family members about what to do with “Mama”.
  • By taking the fear out of having these conversations, you have the opportunity to deepen your relationship and connection with your loved one, bringing your compassion and understanding of your loved one to a whole new level. You will be closer than you have ever been before!
  • Help your doctor know it is okay to talk about these things. In fact, it is a MUST so that your doctor and you can work together as a team on your plan of care, according to YOUR wishes, not the doctor’s wishes.
