End of Life Discussions, with Nancy Light
Show Notes

Nancy Light returns after her episode of Caregivers Grief and broaches the serious topic of End of Life Discussions. The topics for these discussions can range from necessary paperwork to very specific choices for the time of passing. Most have heard of Health Care Proxy, Living Will and other forms needed by hospitals or nursing homes. Nancy shares is wisdom of having other details decided ahead of time to avoid conflict and indecision.

Episode Details:
Everyone wants the last moments of life to be peaceful. We may want to be surrounded by our family members, or we may prefer to have only one person with us. Or, we might want to spare our loved ones the memory of our last breath and die alone. If we never communicate these preferences, we may sacrifice the opportunity to have our wishes fulfilled. Listen in as we discuss how to convey our preferences to our families, and even when. Nancy Light , BSN, RN, MPS has worked in the healthcare field for over 45 years. She was the Chief Nursing Officer for Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, NY until joining Francis House as the Resident Care Coordinator. Nancy served as Chief Operating Officer and then as Executive
 Director until her retirement in December 2020. During her tenure, she mentored many individuals and developing homes in the area of the social model of hospice care. Nancy serves on the professional advisory committees for Nascentia Healthcare and Hospice of Central New York as well as volunteering for Francis House.
