Ilija commented on Caring for the terminally ill

Karina, the information you provided is very interesting. The article regarding mobile services currently being delivered in India is very relevant. It would be interesting to see how such an approach (village/community driven) would operate in western society. I will investigate this further. You have certainly expanded my understanding of what is occurring around the globe regarding palliative care. Thank you so much.

Ilija commented on The Death Oasis

Hi Helen, enjoyed reading your post. Providing a terminally ill patient with a choice where they can die provides them with so much dignity, which I believe would make the last stage of their life much more comfortable. I believe if most people were given the choice of passing away in a hospital or a death hotel, they would choose the later.

Ilija commented on Who's In Charge?

Hi Stephanie. I really liked your idea. It guarantees people a degree of dignity in the last stage of life. You may want to check out Jim Rosenbergs article about "Mortality Coaches". I feel it is similar, (although Jim'scope of a Coach is much greater). You can find it here.
