Nearing the End of Life: A Guide for Relatives and Friends of the Dying

Description:

Sue Brayne's Nearing the End of Life, written with Peter Fenwick, provides an unvarnished yet sensitive guide to what to expect during the dying process of a loved one. The guide focuses not on the minutiae of, for example, funeral planning, but on topics such as how to listen well and "what happens if my relative or friend has dementia?" All of this rests on the authors' view that death "is never an easy time ... But being present at the time of death can be a profoundly rich and moving experience, on many levels."
