Death. Almost no one wants to talk about it, yet we all have to face it some day.
The thing to keep in mind is that we each have choices about how we would (ideally) like our death to go.
I was listening to NPR the other day, and they had a Radiolab segment on death that got me thinking more about what I want personally, and how important it is to think about (and document!) these things in advance. There was a particularly interesting part of the segment where they were talking to doctors about what their end of life choices would be. You might be surprised.
As I've been inspired by this, the next few posts will be about death. I think that contemplating death can very much affect how we live. It's definitely worth giving it the time of day.
Tamara will be posting about topics relevant to caregivers and seniors. More conversations take place on our Facebook Page.
