People’s Choice

During End of Life care, there is a drive to allow and to facilitate people in making their own choices for their care.  The challenge is to help them choose realistic and beneficial goals.  Always encouraging safety, comfort and dignity.

The team who helps make these choices include the community of family and friends plus the hospice team.  You would be so surprised to see the networking and outpouring of love for these folks striving to live the rest of their life, by being in control.  In control of what becomes their last “hoorah.”

If you find people who are willing to honor your choices and help you succeed in efforts, you are a blessed and lucky person.  My challenge to you reading this blog entry is to start planning for that time, when you will say, “I really want this or that to happen for me here on earth and it has to happen now.”
