Dying: What no one wants to talk about

Jacque Wilson (CNN.com) has recently published an article entitled, “Dying: What no one wants to talk about (January 12, 2014). Provided below is the abstract to the article from CNN.com:

Dying: What no one wants to talk about

No one likes to think about death; it is a situation that no one wants to be in. Looking at a loved on a hospital bed as the doctors talk about ventilators, feeding tubes, EEG results, etc. and wondering if this is what your loved one would have wanted is a horrible situation to be in. What would you do in a similar situation?

13-year-old Jahi McMath has made many people question what they would do in a situation like this. Doctors declared her brain dead after a tonsillectomy in early December. Although a judge agreed that she was brain dead, her family fought to keep Jahi alive. Do you think this is what Jahi would have wanted? Her family does not know the answer to that question.

A California study found that 84% of those who were surveyed said their loved ones had no idea or knew what their wishes were exactly and only 29% had ever had a serious conversation about end of life care. No matter what your age is right now you do not know what can happen to you and therefore talking to loved ones about end of life care should be an important conversation to have sooner than latter.

Find out the five things you need to do now by continuing to read more about this article “Dying: What no one wants to talk about” by Jacque Wilson.
