Synopsis: All of us are entitled to the rewards of a peaceful, pain-free death. This book honors that with true stories about hospice patients and inspiring insights from the author. Becoming Dead Right guides us through the general and "how to" information maze that prepares us for dealing with death. Improving and expanding hospice services will require systemic changes in healthcare institutions, outreach to diverse populations, and funding. With the inclusion of hospice programs in nursing homes, dying with dignity becomes even more important. Millions of aging baby boomers heighten the urgency for better hospice care and conditions in nursing homes.
From the Author: The writing of this book rose from a restless literary hunger that confronted me with the urgency for promoting positive conversations about end-of-life healthcare, death, and nursing homes. An inner-city Detroit hospice volunteer for nine years, I ventured weekly into nursing home worlds where many patients lived final phases of their lives. Insights gained through my experiences became the food source for this book. Including both general and racial-ethnic minority perspectives, I wrote these stories, poems, and commentaries to feed inspiration and information to readers about hospice, nursing homes, caregiving, dementia, death, and bereavement.
Death is a necessary portion of life. As America's buffet of populations continues to increase in age and diversity, important end-of-life concerns crave our attention. This book offers solutions for savoring, so we can all be nourished by gourmet satisfactions of dignified death journeys.

Praise for Becoming Dead Right "A school principal and hospice volunteer, Frances Shani Parker relates her experiences with dying people in nursing homes. The second part of her book is about what we as individuals and as a society must do to improve things for those who are dying. I particularly enjoyed the guided tour, conducted from a wheelchair, of Baby Boomer 'Haven'." -- Dr. Roger Woodruff, Director of Palliative Care, International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia "The writing is eloquent and powerful, and the stories are instructive and lasting. After finishing this book, I wanted to do more for other individuals who are dying, for as Ms. Parker so clearly imparts, the dying teach us so much about living well." -- Dr. Peter A. Lichtenberg, Director, Institute of Gerontology, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan "This book is filled with poetry, stories, wisdom and common sense that can help boomers, students, caregivers and policy makers understand their own aging and realize that our society can--and should--make important changes that can ensure safe, dignified, individualized care at the end of our lives." -- Alice Hedt, Executive Director, National Citizens Coalition for Nursing Home Reform Learn more at From the "Aging With Grace" Series at Loving Healing Press ) MED042000 Medical: Terminal Care FAM017000 Family & Relationships: Eldercare SOC036000 Social Science: Death & Dying.
