If you have come here, chances are you’re looking for some trusted advice, about some very tough topics that revolve around end of life issues for a family member, friend or even pet.
It’s difficult to have “the talk” with your parents, spouse or family however, countless people have shared with me that if they had been made aware of the many options available
ahead of time and given a choice, proactive and or preventive measures would have been put into place.
The end-of-life decisions each of us will face for our pets, parents, children and even ourselves will never be easy. With the right information followed by careful planning you, can have the ability to control emotional and financial decisions, which will minimize much of the anxiety and stress for those you leave behind. The benefit of planning enables those you love to focus on what’s really important, rather than leaving them wondering “if” they made the right choices.
Adult children tell me that when their parents left them a “road map” to follow through planning ahead, it was truly a blessing. Conversely, adult children whose parents did not take proactive measures repeatedly say, “they will not put their children through what they had just experienced.”
It’s my goal to provide people with as much information and resources to make informed end-of-life decisions for their entire family…this includes their pets. Why? As a pet parent, it’s my personal belief that it’s unfair to the pet to not make plans for their end of life care, especially if the pet parent enters a care facility that does not allow pets, enters hospice or dies. Just because our life is ending, doesn’t mean our pet’s life has too. It’s my hope that you will plan ahead for your “entire”family. There are many ways to plan for yourself and your pet!
