What matters most when someone close to you has been diagnosed as terminal? Time and quality of life for both of you. Coping with both the practical and emotional questions of this challenging passage.
We are all going to die one day, yet every death is individual — as is the walk toward that individual death both for the one leaving and for the ones they leave behind. Focusing on what truly matters between human beings while taking care of the business of living at the end of life is what this book is about.
“Highly Recommended! The solid ground to stand on while maintaining the balance to serve others in their time of need.” Stephen and Ondrea Levine, authors of
“We all need to be coached through the difficult experiences life presents us with by those who have lived the experience. Sue and Nancy’s book is what we all need: a guidebook through life’s difficulties while truly dealing with what matters and being compassionate to those who are involved. Reading it will help you and your loved ones survive.” Bernie Siegel, MD, author of 365 Prescriptions for The Soul and The Art of Healing.
“This book has been my best friend for the past few months–a book that’s stayed by my bed at night and within reach during the day, the whole time I’ve been taking care of my terminally ill brother. It’s a smart, conversational mix of practical tips, real-life experience and honest advice, even able to make me laugh at myself when I’ve been all tied up in knots. Most importantly, the authors keep reminding me that I’m not alone. I suppose some people will read “OK Now What?” from cover to cover, but for me, it’s been a book to flip through until I found the “Caregiver Tip” that fit the current dilemma, or a section that helped orient me to what was coming next. Being a caregiver for someone you love is hard and lonely work, and Sue Collins and Nancy Taylor Robson have been the non-judgmental friends I’ve needed. Thanks.” Margie
