Frequently in individual, couples and family therapy I hear the hurt and anger client’s feel when someone dies and end-of-life issues were not handled the way my client’s felt they should be. Families can be torn apart trying to make decisions during the stress of dealing with the death of a parent, sibling or child. While profound grief is inevitable; confusion, anger and long-term resentment can easily be avoided by the following preparations.
First, Y Collaborative has a workbook “Put Life in Order, Put Worry Away” to enable you to make decisions about how you want to be treated if you become incapacitated and cannot speak for yourself and for families to use as a start to a conversation before they are in the position to where they have to decide. Having important conversations about care and treatment before it becomes necessary takes all the stress out of decision-making and ensures that your wishes are clear. Peace of mind is a wonderful gift to give your family and, once completed, you know your wishes are clear.
I completed a workbook to make things easier for my loved ones and wish all the people I love had one too, so I could ensure that their personal wishes will be respected at the end-of-life.
Second, Nancy Rust, co-founder of YCollaborative, also will assist you and your family, if this topic is sensitive or difficult, on how you can handle these important issues ahead of time and how you can have the conversations you need to have. You can reach Nancy at [email protected] or 713-521-7699.
Now it is Truly Easy to “Put Life in Order and Put Worry Away.”
We are thrilled to announce that we’ve truly made it easy for you to put life in order and put worry away with the publication of the Texas edition of our new workbook. The workbook is now available for sale on our website and will provide one easy location where you can write down all the information you want your family, friends or doctors to have should you be involved in an accident or unable to speak for yourself.
We’ve provided contact lists, a wallet card, advance directive questionnaires, valid Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) and Organ Donation forms as well as helpful lists that tell you what to do in the first 24 hours after someone dies.
While we don’t provide a form for a will (although filling this out will probably make getting one much easier) we have tried, however, to provide everything else you may need to help communicate your wishes and desires should you be hospitalized or unable to speak.
