End-of-Life Planning


The new health care legislation allows a doctor to be reimbursed for an annual wellness visit with their patients.  We can use this time with the doctor to discuss advance care plans.  What end of life treatment do we want  or not, specific to our health issues. Thus we can ensure that one gets the care one wants. Amen.

A friend sent me an article put out by Channel 13, How Much Do We Spend on End-Of-Life Care. It spells out the actual cost of these common expenditures at the end of life with no tangible results. But in fact with greater distress than is necessary.  After all, I’ve said this before, we will die no matter what we do.  We should have the option to die in peace. Amen again.
