Today's guest is Howard Block, elder care patient advocate expert. He is my go to person for any difficult situations with my elder clients. He has been practicing in this field for over 20 years and his expertise is inspiring. One of the issues we have been discussing recently is a person's wishes at the end of life and how to get facilities and family members to respect those wishes. Howard has many stories, some heartbreaking, about patients and families journeys to get medical professionals and administrators to respect those wishes. We will discuss DNRs and how those wishes can be protected and respected. Howard tells it like it is with humor and honesty. This is a not to miss episode.
