Hiya Ross welcome back from self-imposed Crass exile! And congrats on foster dadding those squirrels.

Thank you so much for all of this excellent advice and info. I’m going to reach out to my sister’s palliative care group on Monday about hospice and end of life planning. I truly need guidance on this.

My sister still believes that full healing is possible but she has agreed that we need to “hope for the best, prepare for the worst.” She has persistently refused to hear about her medical prognosis, so I’m trying to navigate that, with her and her sons and our mom and others.

Regarding legal assistance with the will: yes, that is so necessary. She has sons by two ex husbands, and one of those exes and his family will try to get everything. I know that from when our dad died of cancer. They were a nightmare and they’ll try the same thing again. I want to help protect all of her sons from that added trauma.

Whew.

Cool, thanks. I’ll check the resources from Sprinkles and I also have an attorney suggestion from a family member which I will approach with a bit of skepticism.

Thanks Tac, I think she may be opening up to the possibility of hospice, and Kaiser Permanente offers good hospice care. I’m going to check in with her palliative care group on Monday and let them know she’s discontinuing treatment, and follow up with my sister from there.

Thanks so much Sprinkles, I’ll be looking into these resources over the weekend.

Can anyone suggest how I could find a good, reasonably-priced attorney in Vancouver, Washington (Clark County) to help my sister prepare her will, and other end of life planning? I will also need power of attorney for my sister and our mom, and—well I’m not sure what-all I and we need.

Counseling on the situation in general and what’s needed would be helpful too, though I don’t know if an attorney would be appropriate (or cost effective) for that.

My sister understandably decided to discontinue chemo and radiation treatment, and her prognosis is now for “weeks to a few months.” A lot needs to get done and we’ve talked about that. I’m pretty burned out.
