“The lack of an end-of-life plan created well in advance typically leads to prolonged hospitalization, soaring medical bills and unnecessary pain and suffering for everyone.”
excerpt from “Dying in America: Improving Quality and Honoring Individual Preferences Near the End of Life,”
The Institute of Medicine (2015)
End-of-life preparation is more than just having discussions about medical options and filling out a set of documents.
It is about understanding how families can make a death into a good memory or a tragic legacy.
It’s about knowing how to ask the right questions and develop advocates as you travel through a medical system that is not always equipped to help people die comfortably or at peace.
It’s a process of creating strategies that give you and your family the best opportunities to make sure things go as you want them to go – or as close as possible. It’s about being able to say goodbye.
Practically Dying can help. We work with individuals and families to help you understand and assess your end-of-life needs, develop a personalized plan, find the resources you need, and consult with you on an ongoing basis.
We will work closely with you to create advance care planning documents that reflect your deepest values and priorities, providing clear and powerful guidance for those who will follow your directions, while protecting your family from traumatic surprises or concerns that they have failed you.
We can also work in tandem with your medical team, attorneys, financial planners and other advisors to ensure that you have state-of-the-art advance directives that are congruent with your overall plans for you and your family.
