Talking about palliative care
Talking about dying is hard. And it is sad. However, death is inevitable and the better prepared we are for our death, the easier it will be for us and the ones we leave behind. It is also important to talk about death so you can prepare well. When we prepare in advance for our death we are able to relieve the decision making burden on those closest to us.
