The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted just about every aspect of our personal lives, but life’s demands press relentlessly along. Decisions about the care of mom, dad, or another family member who may be incapable of making decisions for themselves still need to be addressed (perhaps now more than ever). Naturally, families continue to experience the death of their loved ones. This is the stuff of life. Families can be confronted with problems that erupt over managing incapable family members. Similarly, conflict can arise within the family over sorting out the true last wishes after the sudden loss of a relative.
So, how does this change in the age of COVID-19?
