Mallory's Journey

Mallory's Story
Mallory McGrath
“I strongly believe that we need to make conversations about aging and end-of-life care a part of every family’s normal dinner table topics. We talk about birth, the beginning of life with such ease. We need to make it normal to talk about aging and end-of-life in the same way.”

Why do I need to plan my end-of-life?

Dying and death do not only affect the person who is dying. Death impacts everyone in the dying person’s circle of life and caring, be it the spouse, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, siblings or friends. Here we are talking not just about the “burden of care,” but the painful experience of witnessing the suffering and eventual loss of someone they love. At the same time, family members face a maze of services and jurisdictions with which they are unlikely to be familiar. Viive helps families navigate this terrain ahead of time so that as you age, you have the peace of mind to have a plan and your family will avoid hardships.
