Death isn’t a topic most of us are comfortable with discussing; however, it’s an inevitable outcome of life for all of us.
But talking about death and planning for it can make what might be otherwise a bad death, a good death.
During this conversation, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, shares what she has learned during her time with more than 23 people and their families as they transition from life to death.
This is the first in a three part series on end of life. The next two episodes will discuss “things no one tells you about end of life,” and “the end of life specialists.”
I hope you find this mini-series beneficial.

Wise and wonderful guidance for families caring for someone who is on hospice and close to death. Also good insight for professional caregivers to better understand how to support the person who is dying and their family members.
