Are You & Your Parents Prepared For Aging?
The Five Wishes document is a Legal Living Will that can easily guide you through the conversation and documenting your care and comfort choices. It let's you choose the person you want to make healthcare decisions for you if you are not able to make them for yourself.
I offer FREE consultations in person or virtually about the Five Wishes. If you are interested in having me speak to your group please click the button below. I look forward to helping your group age independently with dignity.

Thank you Art, Administrator at Canterbury Village West Orange for letting Hospice of New Jersey visit today and provide homemade Italian Ice and ice cream to your staff. Your facility is a jewel within the community.

Were you aware of some of these benefits of Hospice?
Medicare created hospice benefit in 1982, yet only 48% of qualified families take advantage of hospice.
You choose to "elect" the hospice benefit, and you can stop it at anytime.
Patients pay nothing; Medicare pays 100% of care; visits, medications, medical equipment and supplies related to the illness being treated during hospice.
Hospice is a six-month benefit, though services can continue if patients remain eligible.
Studies show patients enrolled in hospice services live longer with better symptom control and pain management versus non-hospice patients.
For more information on hospice feel free to reach out to me. I am here to help.
