Doctors all over the world have been asking their high risk patients if they have considered what kind of treatment they would like to receive if they were to contract Covid-19. Quite a question to be asked if you have never considered the fact of your own end of life, especially at a time when; although most people recover from CV, many are dying. Jane Duncan Rogers helps people to think about the inevitable, to have conversations about it with their nearest and dearest, and then to write down the decisions they have made about their end of life treatment.
In this illuminating interview Jane explains how the death of her own husband sparked her into viewing death in a completely different light. She talks about why it is even more important now to talk about death, what’s so important about considering the type of treatment we would want and why people are still so reluctant to talk about this. Jane also gets very practical. As well as wills, and powers of attorney, she talks about taking care of passwords (think about that!), ‘cleaning house’, different types of funerals, choice of clothes, and what kinds of events you would want those you love to experience after you’ve left them behind.
In this interview Jane will explain:
Why a simple will is not enough.
What are the essential parts of the EOLP (end of life plan)?
How it’s all about caring for those you leave behind by creating an EOLP to make it easier for them once you’ve gone.
