About this title

Synopsis:

A book that helps you lengthen your living years and shorten your dying years.

About the Author:

A cancer survivor, John Barnett started the first men's cancer information and support group in the Seattle area in 1991 at the University of Washington Medical Center. He teaches a course on chronic condition self-management and is an ombudsman advocating for the rights of nursing home residents.

As primary caregiver to his 92-year-old mother, John has gained valuable experience in problems of the aged who live in their own homes, and in the availability of public and private resources to enable continued independence. As a trained bereavement worker, he counsels those who have recently experienced the death of their spouses, helping them to explore their grief and to assess their own recovery.

John is also a lay Stephan Minister. For seven years he has ministered to seniors in nursing and retirement homes, to hospice patients and their families, and to hospice staff. He helps patients to explore their preparation for dying, prays with them, and is present to the concerns of their families and friends.

Retired from the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), John lives with his wife in Kirkland, Washington. As a balance to his work with the ill and aging, he runs Youth Tennis Outreach in Seattle's inner city and leads tours of Seattle's Arboretum and the Japanese Garden.
