Amazon.com - Sarah Jane Kilgore
What a POWERFUL book. I could not put it down once I started to read it. Talk about perfect timing , with this new aging population. We need this perspective on Hospice and we need to know how VITAL it it to the patient as well as the CAREGIVER.
I felt so much compassion for the author of this book. With so many choices and decisions she had to face by herself, during the most difficult time of her life. This book will help any reader who might be facing these choices…"
