Much like her previous book Soft Landing, the author invites you on a personal journey. When she was 8 years old, she experienced her first death and although not realizing it until much later, knew at a very young age how to provide compassionate care to someone who was dying. The first half of this book clearly indicates that she has been on the hospice path a very long time. The second half of the book contains her first blogs. She started writing a blog hoping to educate and inspire anyone who sits at the bedside caring for another as they near the end of their life. She shares her tools and lessons hoping to remove any fear you might have and inspire you to be fully present for someone else. Her heart is a kind and gentle heart and you will see this as you read her words.
The Hospice Companion by Perry Fine,Matthew Kestenbaum Pdf
More than ever it is incumbent upon those who provide care to those with life-limiting illnesses to be keenly aware of both the extent and the limits of technological advances that can add either great burden or great benefit to seriously ill patients and their families.

Geriatric Palliative Care by Suzanne Goldhirsch Pdf
The growing geriatric population in the United States has created an increasing need for palliative medicine services across the range of medical and surgical specialties. Yet, palliative medicine lacks the resources to carry such a workload itself. Geriatric Palliative Care addresses this need by encouraging individual specialties to "own" the management of elderly with the same vigor as they "own" other key management competencies within their specialty. This clinically focused and highly practical handbook, which compliments the more comprehensive text Geriatric Palliative Care by Sean Morrison and Diane Meier (Oxford University Press, 2003), encourages this process of learning and ownership across many medical specialties. Designed to be readable and easily accessible to a range of health care providers, Geriatric Palliative Care outlines specific strategies for caring for specific palliative care issues common in elderly patients. The handbook also provides evidence based advice for helping patients, relatives, and staff cope with such issues as polypharmacy, dementia and consent, multiple pathologies, home care, elderly caregivers, and supporting the elderly in the place where they would like to be.
