Making The Decision To Donate Your Body

Before making the decision to donate your body to science, there a few things you should research first. Here’s a quick list to go over if you find the idea of body donation appealing.

Decide who you want to be the recipient of your body:

Before donating, do some research on the various institutions that accept body donations. For peace of mind, make sure the agency is accredited; the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) ensures that your remains will be handled with respect and in accordance with medical standards. Also, since you are donating make sure the organization you have chosen does not ask you to pay for expenses. For many people, donation is not only attractive because their body will be doing something progressive after they die, but it also cuts out the cost of burial or cremation. Find a place that provides transportation of your body and cremation costs with no charge to your family.


Alzheimer’s Impact

In Recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month – November

Today, more than 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, with almost two-thirds of Alzheimer’s patients being women. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the disease is responsible for approximately 500,000 deaths annually. This number is expected to increase dramatically as the baby boom generation ages. It is estimated that the cost to Medicare and Medicaid associated with Alzheimer’s care and other forms of dementia is 150 billion.


The Lost Art of Conversation [Free Consultation]

I don’t know about you, but for me…I like to talk to a real human being when I am making important decisions!  I want to have interaction, questions answered, details reviewed…the process of discovery makes me feel more knowledgeable and confident in my choice.  We all make a thousand decisions everyday based upon our experience and knowledge but for those decisions that I don’t feel expert in, I want a consultative approach.
