End-Of-Life Decisions For Families

End-of-Life Decisions .. this is a hard subject at times.  Have you had the conversation with your parents yet about how they envision their life as they get closer to the end of it?  Most of us haven’t.  But it is time that we do.

It is important for us to think about how we want our life to be at the end, because the medical professionals around us during that time certainly aren’t going to guess what we want.  And given the tendency to overdiagnose, overtreat, and overmedicate, you may get subjected to more interventions than you ever anticipated.  The time to be considering what you or your parents might want and not want, and what you want your life to look like, is before you are in the midst of a crisis and needing to make quick decisions.

The Conversation Project is a great way to ease into these discussions.  Their approach provides a safe and manageable framework for talking with family and friends about what is important to you.  They are offering a two session class in April to help you get started.  It is through the Boulder Valley School District’s Lifelong Learning program.
