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.

Life Coach Ade is flying solo for "Swimming Through the Deep End of Life."
A lot of people feel like they have been dropped in the deep end of the ocean without any safety gear or knowledge of how to swim. Life can feel that way sometimes and we can get caught up thinking about our lack of skills and safety equipment to manage the feeling of metaphorically drowning.
However, it is also important to remember that we are buoyant and full of talents to be each other’s life boats. Life Coach Ade will remind you that you can ride the waves. You can breathe. And if all else fails, you can float until you catch the rhythm of the stroke.
Join Life Coach Ade for a conversation that will awaken the strength inside of you to navigate the deep waters.

It is time to take responsibility to care for ourselves and care for the lives of our loved ones; learn how to step up and not back at the end of life. Do you walk away and see less and less of loved ones as they age or become ill? Are you waiting for a call to attend a funeral and not spend valuable life changing moments with those you love? Maybe you just don't know how to recognize what you don't know about the end of life and how to make adjustments? Do you know; the signs of dying, what a healthcare agent is, when and what hospice may help with, what is palliative care and if or when you may take a loved one home for their last hours?
My guest, Dr. Monica Williams-Murphy, MD, has these answers for us today. She is the author of It's OK To Die which is a very descriptive and informative book that describes many processes and procedures which should be taken care of in the end of life phase. If you don't, as she notes, the decisions will not be for you to make as others will decide for you and it may not be in your best interest, nor what your heart and soul wish.
Time to take control and know a little more about what choices you can make; step up now and do them. Time ticks on and you never know when the fine line that allows you to choose will be taken away.

I have been working for several years in a variety of nursing homes, providing psychotherapy to people, who, in one way or another are facing the end of their lives. This has been one of the most difficult and rewarding professional and life experiences I have ever had. I have learned that the closer we get to taking our own demises seriously the more we confront a decision to either give up on life and merely exist or live as if every second is precious and should be lived to the fullest regardless of life circumstances. Tonight I will discuss some of the reasons people opt to exist while others retain their deisre to live. These factors include family support, religious beliefs, unresolved guilt, shame and other conflicts as well as the presence or absence of a deepseated belief that personal choice is always available and that we are the sole owners of our own life. I will discuss my role as a professional in dealing with people suffering existential depression and feelings of meaninglessness as they live out their final time in nursing home facilities.
