Helpful Health!

Thanks to our guest from Renown, Mary Ann Brown, for discussing these usually heavy topics with us...Advance Directives and Palliative Care.

Both are important to have for good reason, and no better time than to responsibly take care of it now so your loved ones aren't left guessing what yoru wishes are!

To clarify:

Advance Directive is "decide in advance what medical treatment you want to receive in the event you become physically or mentally unable to communicate your wishes."

Palliative Care is specialized medical care for patients with advanced stages of cancer and other serious illnesses....not to be confused with hospice care, [which] is meant specifically for those approaching the last stages of life, while palliative care is appropriate for any stage of a serious illness."

Listen to our interview for great ideas on how to start the conversation with your family members. Or visit the links below for more resources from Renown!

Mary Ann also suggests using the resources of " The Conversation Project " 


Here's to boldly planning for what is to come...

    Clearly there needs to be a lot more done, and hopefully some of that will happen.” A municipal court judge found Bogota north face jackets sale uk Mayor Tito Jackson not guilty of a harassment counterclaim that stemmed from an incident that took place during the June 3 primary election at the Bogota Recreation Center.
