Series on dying provides useful information
As our population ages and, specifically, as Baby Boomers reach the era of serious health problems, more and more Americans are facing their own mortality.
It isn't easy for a generation used to being in control to address an issue in which, ultimately, they have no say.
But as the end approaches, dying Americans have much they can do to make the process better for themselves and their families. And that's where a 15-week series running on the Southeast Missourian's Health page each Thursday comes in.
This series is sometimes difficult but important to read and helps prepare those facing death. It is packed with personal experiences so the critically ill know they are not alone. There are tips on dealing with medical professionals and suggested Web sites for more information.
Please read it for yourself and your loved ones.
