HERE IS THE HONEST TRUTH: Making final arrangements for a loved one often brings about more pain and bad feelings among the surviving loved ones than healing. Of course, there is the inevitable pain of losing the loved one, but I am referring to the unnecessary pain—the deliberation over which funeral home should perform the service; the discussions about paying for the service; the arguments over whether the loved one even wanted a service in the first place; the debates over what type of service to disagreements over how the deceased should be dressed for the service. The examples are endless, but I believe you get the picture: If the loved one had just written down his or her wishes on what to do when he or she dies, much of the drama around making final arrangements could be avoided.Death is an important event—and a certainty—in our lives.
Unfortunately, however, like most events we deem significant, many of us do not plan or prepare for our death. When we pass on without leaving instructions about what to do when we die, a massive burden is placed on our loved ones. Many decisions must be made within a short period of time, yet clear choices may be difficult to make. By completing this document and distributing it among those you trust to carry out your final wishes, you are sparing your loved ones the emotional and financial burden of making those final arrangements on your behalf.
Leave a legacy of peace and order by documenting and distributing your final wishes.

BURN OUT. It is not the emotion work of death and dying that burns out palliative and hospice care professionals. It is the emotion work involved with loved ones of the dying and their emotions; it is the administrative requirements the position entails.
It is a fact that schools of medicine, nursing, social work do not adequately prepare its students for a career in palliative and hospice care (Csikai & Raymer, 2005; IOM, 2014; Lloyd-Williams, Cobb, Shiels, Taylor, 2006). Most employees in this field learn care giving on the job. It is important that palliative and hospice care professionals have both formal training and informal leaning opportunities to learn how to provide the best end-of-life care possible for the patient and their loved ones. This training and awareness could mean the difference between a good death and a bad death for all involved.
