Welcome to our group! I created this group to form a community for those of you who have interest and needs and might not know who to ask or what to ask about serious illness. In my experience as a geriatric and palliative care nurse practitioner I have observed many caring, devoted, well-intentioned people either cope alone or suffer silently. My goal is to offer a unique, informative and compassionate atmosphere for you and your loved ones as well a your healthcare team. I look forward to hearing each of your stories, experiences and hope you will use this group to support each other.
