From the PublisherThis book offers guidance to the reader. Through a compelling narrative, it offers help. It will be useful for any one who is going through the difficulty of dealing with care of a loved one, especially if that person is unable to provide his or her own care. It also will be useful for the one who anticipates this situation, either for someone else or for them self. Had this book been available when we were making choices for my mother in her final illness, our lives would have been easier. Being in the medical field, it seems this very readable book would be widely recommended by physicians for their patients and the families of their patients.

There are some books that should just be required reading. This is one of those books. Some day, at some time in our lives, we are all going to need this information. Whether you are a professional care giver or caring for a loved one in your home, the knowledge in Dying the "Right" Way will serve you well. It is a detailed, thorough, no aspect of care is left unaddressed kind of read.
Barbara Karnes, R.N.
This is a wonderful book. Easy to read, heartfelt, and very useful. Ms. Long has done a beautiful job of explaining and putting fact, frustration, and fulfillment into a familiar context. Many people will be able to see their personal situation and adapt and use this guide.

This book is a gift! As a Gerontologist and having worked 15 years in Long Term Care, I believe Ms. Long has created a marvelous caregiving and planning resource for Chaplains and Clergy to place in the hands of families from all faiths. I witnessed the love and care she gave to her parents in their aging and dying experiences and it is my opinion that the writing and resource gathering for Dying the Right Way stems from the same type of dedication for others who will walk similar paths.

Caregivers often feel isolated and have few resources. Jan Long's book is a personal story with helpful advice, tools, and reflection on what it means to care for someone you love. I recommend it to anyone needing help in their own caregiving journey.
