Few of us are comfortable talking about death, whether our own or a loved one’s. It is a scary, even taboo, subject for many. The end of a life, no matter how long and well lived, can bring with it a sense of loss and sadness. It can also be a reminder of our own mortality, so we may avoid even thinking about death. This is normal -- but death is normal, too. All of us will face it at some point.
Because the end of life is hard to predict, it is best to plan ahead. You might want to start by asking yourself or a loved one, “What is the best way to plan for the end of life?” No matter how a person chooses to approach the end of their life, there are some common hopes -- nearly everyone says they do not want to die in pain or to lose their dignity. Planning for end-of-life care, also known as advance care planning, can help ensure such hopes are fulfilled. (nihseniorhealth.gov)
Sharing your wishes for end of life care can bring you closer to those you love. Below are some tools to help you figure out what you want if something happens to you, more importantly it can help prepare family and friends to carry out your wishes. (begintheconverstation.org)
We hope that these resources will offer you and your loved ones peace of mind and comfort as you counsel together about preparing for end of life.]

In addition to Ask Eleven About Autism, we have compiled a resource list of organizations in Utah that serve individuals with autism. This resource list was created by KBYU Eleven in conjunction with the broadcast of Ask Eleven About Autism. Those included are primarily non-profit organizations and agencies, however there may be fees associated with some of the services they offer. There are also a number of for-profit entities in Utah that provide valuable services. This list does not constitute or imply a recommendation by KBYU or Brigham Young University.
