According to poll done by NgeeAnnPoly, the top three fears about dying is being a burden to family and friends. The other, medical cost and pain.
As Dr Ong Kian Chung puts it, in many cases, most next of kins would want to do the utmost to salvage a hopeless situation resulting in unnecessary prolong suffering. A classic case of "paliating the relatives, rather than the patients"
Advice given from LeePohWahCeo of LienFoundation
*Don't maintain a conspiracy of silence.
Avoidance and denial of death may lead to lifelong regret, unresolved guilt and prolonged grief
for those who live on.
*Don't busy yourself fighting death, instead of living. Quality rather than quantity.
*Seek help from hospice palliative care services.
It takes alot of courage and preparation to go on a solo one way ticket adventure to the great unknown without a stitch.
