It’s Time to Have Important Conversations

Catherine McGregor, RN, MSN, Palliative Care Coordinator

Do you know your parents’ wishes if they become seriously ill? Have you talked with your adult children about your wishes in the event of you becoming gravely ill?  End-of life conversations are among the most difficult yet important conversations you can have with your loved ones.

Catherine McGregor, RN, MSN, Palliative Care Coordinator at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital, assists many families in having challenging conversations about how they want to be able to live their life consistent with their goals and values. “Each of us has the ability to guide our healthcare providers and our loved ones about what we want,” said McGregor. “Our Palliative Care team in concert with your physician is dedicated to assisting patients and their families in exploring options for care when faced with difficult decisions about end-of-life care.”

 Completing an Advance Directive gives you the ability to document the types of healthcare you do and do not want, and to name an “agent” to speak for you if you cannot speak for yourself.
