Overview

Life, Love and Transition: Guidance for the End of Life, by Suzanne O’Brien, RN, is a complete guide to home hospice care. Written by a dedicated hospice nurse, this book is full of practical caregiving advice drawn from Suzanne’s extensive bedside experience. Life, Love, and Transition helps both patients and caregivers learn how home hospice provides medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support to dying patients and their families. The goal of hospice and of Life, Love and Transition is always to improve the quality of the patient's final time on earth by offering comfort and dignity. In this clearly written, thorough text, patients and families will learn what they really need to know about the many complex issues hospice raises. Starting with the decision to enter hospice care, Suzanne goes on to discuss the importance of advance directives and health care proxies, the crucial role of pain management and palliative care in hospice treatment, what happens as a patient nears death, and why caregivers need care, too. An extensive chapter on caring for the hospice patient gives easy-to-follow, practical advice on basic care and comfort care, medications, and handling common issues such as breathing difficulties, pain management, and skin care. Suzanne also provides extensive and moving discussions of the spiritual side of hospice care, death, and dying.
