Nursing home resident Margot Bearden believes people are afraid of death because it is unknown to them. Talking about it and completing a POLST form can help.
About this Series: In our fragmented health care system candid conversations about death and dying are far from routine. As a result, people's end of life wishes are often incompletely expressed and honored. Through a series of short films five individuals reflect on their own experiences with death and dying.
You're not a mind reader; neither are your loved ones. Talk with your family and physician about your wishes for care at the end of life. Then put them in writing!
