National Healthcare Decisions Week

So many events, lots of people reached, awareness is growing....

Read three of the six winning essays from Arapahoe High Students. They are now working on a video to help others talk about death and dying.

The Conversation Project in Boulder, in conjunction with Naropa University graduate students, sponsored a panel called  "Cultural Perspectives on Death and Dying." It was a fascinating and informative evening.
Good Reading
Some rules are meant to be broken. Read about compasstionate nurses who gave a dying man his last wish. We are slowly beginning to understand the needs and choices of the dying.


Here's a wonderful RESOURCE for you and your loved ones.  Someone in your family needs to talk.....

And in THE ECONOMIST - as the conversation becomes more mainstream - "Death is inevitable.  A bad death is not."


Read about the "Dementia Provision" for Living Wills, from Compassion and Choices. What do you think?
