Life in a Hospice: Reflections on Caring for the Dying
End-of-life care at its best
Dying – it’s an uncomfortable topic. None of us likes to think about what our last days will be like. But if we do think about them at all, we want them to be full of peace and tranquillity, with the chance to say proper goodbyes to those we love. Life in a Hospice takes you behind the scenes in end-of-life care, showing the enormous efforts of nurses, doctors, chaplains and others to provide the calm that we all hope for.
Perhaps you are looking for end-of-life care for someone you love. Perhaps you are wondering if this is the job for you. Or you just feel like being inspired by humanity at its best. This book will be for you.
