All of us will experience physical death. Those who plan well often die well. I’ve seen many patients pass away without putting their affairs in order, and witnessed the chaos it caused loved ones.
In sharp contrast, the patients who planned well passed on with peace and dignity. Personal, emotional and spiritual needs were attended while their loved ones experienced greater peace of mind. It is my heartfelt pleasure to assist you or a family member make the necessary arrangements and create an excellent end-of-life care plan.
The Three Ds:
- Decide how you wish to be treated if you are unable to speak on your own behalf.
- Discuss your wishes with loved ones in advance.
- Document your wishes in an Advance Directive.

The number one concern of loved ones is whether they are honoring the dying person’s wishes. Susan will assist you to make informed decisions about your end-of-life care. Your loved ones will feel more confident taking charge when they know exactly how you want to be treated. Schedule an appointment online or by phone to discuss your current end-of-life care directives.
Family meetings are high priority items. Excellent end-of-life care becomes far less complicated in terms of emotional stress and indecision on the part of loved ones when you’ve discussed your wishes and documented your choices in an advance directive. Susan assists in family meetings either onsite or in her office in Park Ridge, IL. She will answer the tough questions, document changes and gently moderate when necessary.
The actions we take today may become the greatest gift to our loved ones. Because your wishes and documents are known in advance, the potential for a dispute in vastly reduced. In the event a dispute should arise among you, your loved ones or caretakers, you may designate Susan to provide mediation services. Should a legal case develop, Susan R. Dolan is licensed to practice family law and mediation in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.
