Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Dying well, comfortably and peacefully, is one of the most important, most desired of personal choices. At the same time it is one of the most misunderstood topics. Few of us really want to talk about death, yet each of us will be facing it at some point in our lives. What's more, many of us are or will be a caregiver for another during this challenging time in one's life. Dying Well with Hospice shines light on this difficult subject by: providing options for making end of life peaceful, dignified, and to lessen suffering; demystifying the dying process -- understand how the natural process of death unfolds and what actually happens; showing how hospice provides extraordinary support and resources for palliative care; demonstrating how to use advance planning to carry out your wishes and avoid making difficult decisions during what can be an overwhelming time; offering suggestions for beginning this conversation with loved ones and family members. Co-authored by a hospice professional and the spouse of a hospice patient, Dying Well with Hospice addresses the fears we have about death, discusses the many options available for making this a productive and loving time of transition. It also describes how to begin this dialogue for yourself and others. Additionally, Dying Well with Hospice dispels the myth that terminal patients who choose to end treatment have "given up". Instead, it shows how end of life can be embraced fully when the distractions of treatment are removed at the choice of the patient, allowing them to decide what they want to do with their remaining time. Simply put, Dying Well with Hospice shows you how to reduce suffering, provides comforting advice during this critical time in one's life cycle, and offers numerous options for personal growth, freedom, and peace of mind."--Back cover.
