Great Book

This is a great book for anyone who may be working in a field of business that deals with death and dying, especially anyone working with the elderly. It gives great insights into the dying process and how to constructively work with people who are actively dying.

A friend lent me this book after she lost her adult son to cancer. When I finally got over my reluctance to read it, I was amazed at how fascinating this collection of personal stories are. Written by two hospice nurses, their patients have taught them much about the many different ways that dying people want to communicate. The important lesson for me is that they want to talk about death as they experience what the authors call "nearing death awareness." Putting the dying person off with, "Oh, you'll outlive me," leaves them lonely and exerting effort to protect their caregivers' feelings. They need to talk, and we need to recognize their sometimes indirect ways of bringing up the subject. And we must never tell them that they are not visiting with loved ones who have already passed away. Two of the patients recognized loved ones visiting them "from the other side" who had died, unbeknownst to them. They had not been told for fear of upsetting them. The patient's response was, "What are you doing here?" This book has reassured me that death can be kind and serene, if the surrounding family and friends are loving and supportive.

This is a must-read for anyone caring for an elderly or terminally ill loved one in their home or if they have a good friend who is dying. It also should be required reading for anyone who works in a nursing home. My elderly father-in-law came to live with us, and I was concerned about how I could support him as he faces his death. He will be entering Hospice soon. This book was so interesting and informative with many examples of how people have died, how their loved ones handled it, and ways to make the process more bearable and supportive. It has helped me immensely!
