Health and Informed Decisions
Aging is perhaps the most profound experience because none of us know our own trajectory. Will we be physically able, mentally competent or will we gradually lose our capacity to care for ourselves. It helps to understand the journey to plan for the future as best we can.
We are currently in the midst of a pandemic and 2020 not only took thousands of lives, we were inundated with misinformation and contradictions about the trajectory, interventions and ultimately vaccinations. We need to know the truth to make informed decisions.
Perhaps most relevant in ones' journey of life is the planning for our death to make it as tolerable as possible for those left behind. It means planning wisely in advance, knowing options and documenting decisions.
