Death Laws in Indiana

Do you know how to die here?

Do you know how you want to die? Or maybe a better question is how to you want people to care for you afterward?

Most people in the US state they want to die at home. However, staggeringly, Americans are dying inside of a hospital or a facility. There is much discrepancy in what we want and what we have access to here in the Midwest.

Dying at home requires a team of people like hospice, palliative care, and other caretakers that are not in the business of curative treatment, but in the ministry of person centered death transition support.

Here are some things you may not know about living and dying in Indiana:

Dying has been co-opted by the medical industrial complex to make profit on our grief. There are ways to care for and have your body tended to that feel most aligned with your religion, culture, values, and predetermined goals. Planning and preparation for this ultimate experience assists those supporting and surviving you with the empowerment and confidence of what you want and how you want to be cared for.
