welcometothecrosswalk

A resource for navigating serious illness and end-of-life care decisions.

A crosswalk is a safe space used to navigate oncoming traffic. We chose this metaphor for our new resource for several reasons:

When given a life-limiting diagnosis...

• it can feel like the world is coming at you rapidly and decisions must be made in haste
• you might not know what your options are for moving forward
• you could be unsure which path is the right one for you

Roots & Roads is here to walk you through the journey, no matter where you start.

Our vision is to transform the end-of-life experience into the final act of living well. Although our focus is on hospice care, we realize that a comprehensive resource is needed to guide our community from time of diagnosis.

Should you choose to pursue treatment, we offer resources for questions to ask your provider. You may be wondering what palliative care is and we provide answers along with information about providers in your area. If you determine that hospice care is best for you, we want you to be fully informed about who provides it and what services you're entitled to. We also want to support your family through their journeys in caregiving and grief.

In 2021, the idea for Crosswalk was born when community members asked Roots & Roads to address the need for easily accessible, accurate, and unbiased information regarding end-of-life and serious-illness care. We are humbled by the importance of this initiative and invite you to share your experiences and thoughts so that this resource will be as inclusive and accessible as possible.
