    End of Life and pre-plan Options

    in Family

    Tonight we discuss with Celeste Toombs the importance of pre-planning for the End of Life. As we are all aware that some day we will leave this earth but don't want to think about the process and the preparation in doing so. Why not make it easier for our loved ones and allow them the time they need to grieve versus the planning part of it. Celeste has embarked upon this entrepreneurial venture to help educate us on creating End of Life plans.

    Spirit Matters; & End of Life Health Care

    in Spirituality

    Spirit Matters; & End of Life Health Care with Judy Flickinger


    In her book, Spirit Matters, Judy Flickinger offers a seldom-considered but all-important  perspective on what really matters at the end of life. As a retired hospice nurse turned author, Judy focuses on the importance of keeping the spirit—the  person inside the dying body—alive and well during the course of a life-limiting illness.Spirit Matters exposes the motives, misconceptions, and lack of knowledge that often prevent dying people from receiving the type of care that  can create and maintain a healthy spirit. The message in Spirit Matters is conveyed in eleven lessons illuminated by the personal stories of dying people and their families. Readers will learn, laugh, cry, and hopefully realize that near the end of life, first and foremost - Spirit Matters


    Judy Flickinger was a hospice nurse for the last twelve years of her forty two-year professional life as a registered nurse. During her hospice career, she  worked directly with hundreds of dying persons and their loved ones. 

    Early in her hospice work, Judy came to realize that a successful hospice outcome depended as much, if not more so, on the condition of the patient’s spirit as it did on the condition of the patient’s body. She recognized that a healthy spirit could make the difference between a miserable death and a positive, meaningful end-of-life experience for both the patients and their loved ones.
