A Focus Series

End-of-life decisions

Biblically based help for navigating the difficult topic of end-of-life care and decisions 
Inside this Series

The topic of end-of-life care is one that many shy away from. It’s too uncomfortable to talk about and there are too many uncertainties and unanswered questions, so we tend to avoid it – until it becomes unavoidable. The following articles, broadcasts and resources will give you guidance and medically sound advice as you and your family either plan for end-of-life care or are in a season of having to make these difficult decisions.

If you would like to speak to one of our counsellors on this topic, you can call and make a free one-time phone consultation. Call us at 1.800.661.9800 or visit FocusOnTheFamily.ca/Counselling to learn more.

Additionally, every weekday morning, our team gathers to pray for the needs of families across the country. You can email [email protected] or submit your prayer request online at FocusOnTheFamily.ca/Prayer. Or if you’d like to receive prayer over the phone, call our team at 1.800.661.9800.
