Living at the End of Life
What s going to happen? How will we manage? There are things I still want to do. I m afraid As death approaches, both patient and family must cope with grief, pain and seemingly unanswerable questions. It s a time of challenge, of concerns. But, as hospice nurse Karen Whitley Bell reminds us, it also offers an opportunity to explore and rediscover the fuller, richer meaning of life. Drawing on her years of experience, Bell has created a comprehensive, insightful guide to every aspect of hospice care and the final stages of life. She discusses the physical, emotional and spiritual journey a dying person goes through; care-giving during this difficult period; closure and loss and the lessons it teaches us. In addition to her warm, yet knowledgeable voice, readers get firsthand accounts of experiences in hospice care, making Living at the End of Life accessible, reassuring, and indispensable.
