Written by Ann McLeod:
Stuff has been after me for years.
You guys get off your butts and enjoy.
Life is short and eventually runs out. I have completed my Bucket List and added a few.
“COMFORT CARE ONLY”
Our society doesn’t want to talk about aging and death because we are entrenched in a belief that quantity of years is always preferred over quality of life. This is largely driven by advancement in life prolonged technology and treatments.
So when should we forgo these treatments and go to “Comfort Caring”
We all should have conversations
Residents who have moved into long term care often feel they’ve lost their voice.
