Stop Aggressive Treatment

For some people with complex and terminal illnesses, the time comes when there are no more treatment options available, or the harm from medical treatment outweighs the potential benefits. At this point, doctors or patients may decide to discontinue curative treatment. Often, this leads to admission to palliative or hospice care, which may or may not be the best option.

This support system could include:

Options for an Empowered End of Life Experience

It’s important for you to know that not only are there options, but there are healthcare professionals and holistic practitioners who are willing and able to explore the options with you and your loved ones, prior to and during the last phases of your journey. At Empowered Endings, we believe that everyone should understand their care options, so each person is empowered to make the best decisions about their final days, weeks, or months of life. Whichever path one chooses to take, being at home with proper support is often the best, and preferred, option when feasible.

I am very grateful to Dr. Bob Uslander and Elizabeth Uslander for all their care and assistance to my late husband and our family. Their visits to our home, thoughtful personal attention, and management of his medical and spiritual needs made his final days comfortable and content and allowed him to remain in the home that he loved with his family. Dr. Bob Uslander’s evaluation and interventions, and Elizabeth’s perceptive insights, were especially helpful and eased his crossing immensely.


It’s a blessing that the state of California provides qualifying patients with an option. Nobody should have to suffer. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Bob Uslander for his professionalism, sensitivity and care.
