When a loved one gets diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy, it is a strenuous and devastating experience for everyone involved. It is especially difficult when family members must plan for their loved one’s end of life.
This burden often falls to the primary family caregiver, but this process can be made easier if you and your loved one discuss end of life plans before a terminal diagnosis. It is always difficult to plan for the end of a loved one’s life, so be compassionate but firm. It is important that your loved one puts their end of life wishes in writing in order to receive the proper hospice care.
