Sooner rather than later is our motto. One of the most critical mistakes is asking for end of life support too late. People are living with chronic health conditions that require some form of assistance with daily living for 5, 10, 15 years of their life. Allowing YANAEC to help families at this time is invaluable. It also allows us to give the support early and develop relationships prior to heading into an end of life phase. By doing this, we can have all the anticipated needs and support in place well in advance. This dramatically reduces the inevitable stress and creates the most positive experience possible.
