Clear and straight-forward information

This book is a comprehensive roadmap of the many considerations a caregiver must address when a loved one is in decline. It provides clear and straight-forward information as well as helpful links to resources available to assist with many aspects of end-of-life care. I wish I had read it when my parents were in their final years. I highly recommend this book in every respect.

Knowing what to look for made the difference

I just wanted to say your book helped my wife through the death of her brother in FL … we located a palliative care organization who helped her brother and my wife through his death via cancer. He had lived on the street for 20 years and it was awesome to find people who treated him like a real person and my wife as the grieving sister. Knowing WHAT to look for was a big deal … thank you.

You don’t have to be alone

So many situations that happen in the end-of-life stage are beyond our control. But what we can control is reaching out, asking for help, learning about the resources already in place for us. That's where Judith's book is very helpful.

It’s refreshing to have a professional caregiver provide all of the information in a small, comprehensive, well-proportioned guide. Caregivers are already overwhelmed. Fortunately, Judith's book is an easy read and you can find specific needs very easily.

We often think of hospice care as being all about the patient. But in Judith‘s book, she gives really good tips about the needs of the caregivers, too, and the resources available to us.

The personal notes were also very warm and disarming. It was nice to have a private situation that Judith has experienced to go along with a lot of the legal and medical information.

It’s very important for people who are doing the primary caregiving to be supported. I appreciated the section about clergy and social workers assisting individuals and families with their concerns and openly discussing fears without judgment.

And even though we should feel grateful for the opportunity to care for our loved ones towards the end of their lives, the truth is caregiving is difficult. It was nice to be able to read about the common feelings of caregivers, including guilt and resentment.

There’s even a list of apps and checklists to help organize medical records and other personal health records.

Thank you, Judith, for putting this guide together for us.
