In this deeply personal and revealing episode of Mind Brain Body radio, periodic guest co-host, psychologist Dr. David Gruder, discusses with Dr. Michael Kell his mother’s extraordinary end-of-life journey. He shares in intimate detail how his mother took responsibility for each stage of her aging and dying process, from moving into an independent living community to later shifting into assisted living, and ultimately deciding the time had come to receive hospice care. He transparently describes his mom’s process of coming to peace with her mistakes and regrets, and the challenges she encountered when she exercised her patient rights regarding end-of-life choices. And, he shares the five big life lessons about aging and dying that his mother wrote in an article about her journey through her final stage of life. Dr. Kell called this the most moving show he has ever done.
