"I've seen families in tears of distress from not knowing what to do, and families in tears of relief when we found a patient's wishes documented... though they had never been discussed."

“Thank you for arranging this event. My husband and I both felt emotionally drained when we left but there was so much good information and we talked for several hours when we got home about What Matters to us. We’ve had superficial discussion about this but never in-depth and to the point of putting anything in writing.” Carol- Being Mortal Participant
