Read this book years ago and have found the info to be true and very helpful before, during, and after the anxious time of a loved one's passing. Incredible insight by these nurses. Truly a book about gifts that can be given, received, and shared during this important process. I recommend this book to everyone, whether you are lucky enough to be an active participant in someone's journey or unable to be close to a loved one for any reason. The information will be comforting to all involved. 5 stars.
Excellent book for people thinking about their lives and their deaths. Helps demystify the process of dying. Readable
Well written by several people who know what they are talking about. I recommend it for friends & family members who can discover how very little there is to fear, for themselves and for their loved ones.
I also recommend it to those considering 'sitting with the dying' as a vocation (paid or volunteer) to give depth and breadth to their own experience based understanding.
This book is always available in the Plane Tree Health Information Center @ Cupertino Library. GL 100 C 1992
I found this to be an excellent source of information as to what the dying person is feeling and experiencing during the last months and weeks of life. It prepared me in a way I had not expected, to know when and how to talk about death with my loved one. And, really, knowledge is power.I found it wasn't all that frightening. Still sad, but no longer scary.
