Family Counseling Conversation Around End of Life



Portland Area Family Counseling

End of life issues are for family counselingI do some work in hospice. End of life is something that will happen to all of us. We typically don’t know when or how.
I would encourage you to talk to your loved ones about what you want or don’t want. Sometimes someone will die and family doesn’t know what the person who died wanted. This can be hard on family especially when people have differing opinions. End of life issues is something that people can find difficult to bring up.
One way to bring it up is to acknowledge that it can be hard to talk about or sometimes even think about. Sometimes people do think about it and don’t mention it to anyone else. Also acknowledge (if this is true for you) that you want to honor them and find out what is important to them.
Have you thought about your end of life desires? This is something I work with clients in family counseling. Contact me for an appointment in the Portland area.
