About this title

Synopsis:

Dying the Right Way is written for seniors, families, and caregivers.  Dying the Right Way prepares seniors and families for the time when caregiving is needed, and offers a system for caregiving in the home for either family caregivers or for monitoring professional caregivers.  Dying the Right Way extends the caregiving experience to assist seniors in planning for the time when they might need care:  through the document preparation phase, the search for a residential facility, life support, the dying experience, funeral planning, and settling of the estate.
 

From the Back Cover:

Dying The Right Way is written by the daughter of elderly parents, who were both ill at the same time. Her knowledge of the medical system and systems management allowed her the ability to extend their lives at least one year each. But, even with this knowledge, the caregiving journey was long, emotional, difficult, with problem-solving required every day. This journey was exhausting, but satisfying, and met the wishes of the author's parents.


Dying The Right Way: A System of Caregiving and Planning for Families, guides the reader on a journey from the beginning of caregiving through the end of life. Though directed primarily to the family caregiver, this book will be helpful to seniors as they approach the time when they need assistance, e.g., what to plan for, what to think about, and what to tell their families. Medical personnel could offer this book to their patients to assist them in caregiving tasks. Additionally, this manual may be used by professional caregivers to improve their skills.

Dying The Right Way tells the author's parents' stories as they enter the world of caregiving and continues their stories through topics on caregiving (hiring, duties, guidelines, tips), dying, funeral planning, grief, hospice, legal forms, life support, meal planning/menus, organ donation, residential facilities, settling the estate, and web resources. Dying the Right Way also provides 21 Caregiving Maxims and 42 caregiving forms for use in home caregiving settings.
