Most people find it difficult to:
1) Speak about death, dying and grief
2) Understand why these conversations should be had
3) See the importance of such conversations
When we do not speak about End of Life experiences, we often deny the importance that such matters have had on our lives, even if they happened decades ago.
The conversations help us to normalize a very natural part of our lives. The more we engage, the more comfortable we become and the less we make decisions based in fear.
It is important that we have these conversations with family and loved ones so we understand how we each may want a different end of life experience. Each person is an individual, and so will be there wishes for their final journey.
A Necessary Conversation encourages everyone to begin these conversations now. The article attached gives some useful information on how to start discussing EOL care. Please check it out.
