LeavingInPeace.com was founded by attorney Lori D. Becker, because of the strong demand by people who needed assistance in critical areas to help facilitate a peaceful transition for the end of their lives.
“For generations, we have been taught that the end of our life simply happens. However, the transition to this stage is quite often ignored and it is in that particular area of our lives where we will all need assistance. I learned this through trial and error the hard way in caring for my elderly parents. I wish I had my current knowledge and resources during that period in my family’s lives. Sadly, people wait too long before making important decisions and having difficult conversations.
I have over 18 years as an attorney with extensive experience in conflict resolution and problem solving. However, it wasn’t until I faced my parents’ deaths that I understood how good intentions are often so poorly planned. Conversations and planning that need to happen never do. It may not even be out of avoidance but rather just not knowing what must be done before it is too late.
Through my volunteer work as an EMT/Firefighter of my local Fire Station, I realized this issue is far more prevalent and much bigger than my own family. The Fire Station services numerous calls for the elderly and their families and for a variety of medical reasons. It was an eye opener to see so many families poorly prepared mentally and practically in terms of caring for their loved one nearing the end of life.
Thankfully, there are lots of options and opportunities to help improve this final stage of life. Take the time to learn more to help your family.”
