NHPCO - It's About How You Live Ribbon

For those of you interested in wearing ribbons to help further a cause, the NHPCO has made white ribbons stating "It's About How You Live" that are white to help push advance care planning, always a good thing. It is all part of a bigger campaign using the acronym LIVE:

  • Learn about options for end-of-life care
  • Implement plans to ensure your wishes are honored
  • Voice decisions to family, friends and health care providers
  • Engage others in conversations about the importance of advance care planning
Unfortunately, they are sold out until March 17th, but you can still place an order.

And just to prove I am not just all talk, I did bring as a gift for my family reunion last year, I brought every adult a copy of the Five Wishes documents. It was a very interesting reception I received when I passed them out, needless to say, but with a little conversation it got a little better.
