I know I’m about a week behind on this one, but I think it’s important. Jane Gross wrote a piece for one of the New York Times blogs about all the decisions that needed to be made for her mother towards the end of her life. In the piece titled What I Wish I’d Done Differently, Ms. Gross talks about everything from having a geriatrician to selling her mother’s house, and all the uncertainties in between.
She points out, quite correctly that there’s no way to be without uncertainties in situations like this, but that she would have liked to known prior to making some decisions that ultimately limited the choices they had later in regards to her mother’s care.
Something to think about this afternoon . . .
