Mary Boyd, a Certified Pre-Planning Specialist at Peterson/Kraemer Funeral Homes, knows the importance of end-of-life wishes.
Last August, her father died after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Boyd's father spent the last 14 months of his life under the care of hospice care.
Boyd calls it a life-changing experience.
"It was amazing the services they provided for my dad's quality of life in the nursing home where he lived and also the services they provided for my brother and I through the process," said Boyd.
Boyd will share her message at the Hospice Care Fair in Wausau Tuesday evening at Bunker's Bar & Grill in Wausau.
