Planning for the inevitable

First, I want to thank everyone who emailed, called or mentioned to me in person their condolences over my mother's death, and that they were glad that I wrote my experiences in An Apple A Day. When I started this healthcare blog, I really anticipated having many months to explore the issues surrounding long-term care, quality of care for the aging, and living with dementia from first-hand experiences. I had no idea that I would be writing about end-of-life decisions so soon.
