End of Life Care

End-of-Life Discussion

Video Highlights

  • Get the conversation started
  • Give your loved-one control
  • An open-mnd can lead to a good experience

Discussing someone’s final days is often a very difficult conversation to have. If done at the right time and in the right way, though, it can make a world of difference. Elinor Ginzler, director of Livable Communities, discusses how to ease fears around this topic and get the most out of the conversation. Starting early is important — this discussion should happen when your loved one is still healthy and can articulate their wishes on how they would like their treatment to go at the end of their life. Giving your loved one control over their final days will bring peace of mind to all involved.
