For many caregivers, helping a friend or family member through the last days of life is part of the job. The task is challenging, and it is normal to feel unprepared. Emotional, spiritual, and practical needs all require our attention--and a level of expertise we may not feel we possess. Thankfully, many wise and experienced guides are available to help. This booklist includes some excellent resources; for more, please ask your librarian. --Jenny W.
