Grief Counseling: End of Life Decisions

End of Life decisions are best made well before the final moments.  Health care professionals who are better equipped with knowledge in handling these situations can serve the entirety of their patients better.   The needs of the patient and suggestions of the caregiver should be an open mutual forum between each other and the suggestions of other family members.  Communication is the key.
