Know Your Dying Loved Ones Values and Wishes

Oct 5, 2012

Lake Effect's Stephanie Lecci will conclude her series Friday on death and dying in the 21st century. She joined WUWM's Bob Bach during Morning Edition, to discuss the reasons she addressed the subject and what the series uncovered.

One take-away message Lecci heard throughout hours of interviews with people nearing death and their loved ones, is to discuss the subject of dying early enough to know the person's wishes for end of life care. Being armed with the information can alleviate future tension and guessing.
