Ending A Life: Locals Look To Start Conversations About Death

November 01, 2019

 

Research suggests Nevada’s senior population could triple from 2000 to 2030. 

 

Some call it the silver tsunami. And among the many challenges this aging nation faces is — how to die?  

 

A majority of people say they’d prefer to pass away in the comfort of their own home.

 

The reality is, most die in a hospital.  But some health care providers in the community are working to change this by getting people to talk about the end of life in new ways.

 

Dr. Manpreet Sran, Attending Physician at our Infinity Hospice Care Las Vegas, NV location, was a guest on a live radio panel discussion. KNPR Nevada Public Radio (88.9 FM).
