Some things you need to be considering

There are quite a number of things to be considering when someone you love is diagnosed with a potentially life threatening illness.  This list is by no means complete but it will give you an all around impression of what may lie in front of you. The list is based on my own experience with a focus primarily on home care. When I hear people say that “We agreed to go through the dying process at home”, I now wonder how quickly they came to that decision and whether they understand the breadth of what’s involved. Hopefully this will help get the thought process going.

Ira,
This is very good and comprehensive.
I went through this with my sister two years ago (ovarian cancer).
I will share this with others.
Thank you.
Lisa

Thanks Lisa. I think you can appreciate how important it is for someone who hasn’t gone through this yet. It’s not a complete list, but the things that definitely stood out for me while caring for Kris.
