Item description for The Dying Time: Practical Wisdom for the Dying & Their Caregivers by Joan Furman & David McNabb...

that addresses equally the concerns of those who are dying and those who have committed themselves to meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The choice of home, hospital, or hospice care, the importance of basic nursing skills, and recognizing the signs of a failing body are all considered with frankness and sensitivity.

Publishers Description
" One of the best books available on caring for the dying, The Dying Time combines deep insight and down-to-earth practicality. All caregivers need to know what's between these covers. This book demystifies the process of death, yet honors the sacredness of life's final transition. Highly recommended."
Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer Is Good Medicine
" Living until we die can be difficult. This book can guide you through that time. It is practical, spiritual, and filled with wisdom."
Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles
Here is a comprehensive and thorough handbook for the dying and their caregivers. Joan Furman and David McNabb walk the reader through the dying time, providing details on how to make the environment conducive to peace and tranquillity, give physical care, understand and respond to the emotional and spiritual crises that naturally occur, and stay healthy as a caregiver. They answer with honesty and sensitivity the questions most frequently asked, such as what actually happens at the time of death. The book also deals with arranging for a meaningful memorial service and handling grief for those who are left behind. And it offers guided imagery for coping with pain and suggests literature and music to ease the passage of those whose health is irreversibly failing.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dying Time: Practical Wisdom for the Dying & Their Caregivers?

The Dying Time: Practical Wisdom for the Dying & Caregivers  Dec 4, 2001
This is a simple, powerful, and incredibly useful book for those who are helping a loved one through the final stages. Written with compassion, the book manages to explain certain painful issues with clarity. The "practical wisdom" offered helped me greatly when I needed to figure out how I could help a loved one whose condition was beyond helping medically.
Brief but thorough.  Aug 22, 1998
As one who was one of my Dad's caregivers at home for 5 1/2 months prior to his death June 5, 1998, I found this book to offer very good advice. I especially liked the "guidelines for visitors"...
