Our spiritual life is an often-overlooked aspect of wellness, but our guiding beliefs, principles and values provide us with deeper meaning and purpose.
A Part of Life
Although we often wish to avoid the subject of dying, understanding the choices we have for end-of-life care can offer comfort in knowing that our experiences during this period will align with our values and wishes. Learn how to have the conversation about end-of-life with your loved ones as well as how to honor the wishes of others in this stage of life.
