Debra Parker Oliver and her husband were living a fairy-tale life—until his terminal cancer diagnosis. Rather than spend precious time fighting a disease they knew they could not beat, they focused on living and making memories with their family. From that experience, as well as her decades as a hospice researcher and manager of a hospice agency, Oliver wrote Legacies from the Living Room: A Love-Grief Equation for people caring for loved ones with terminal illnesses. Unique in that it is written not from the patient’s perspective but from the caregiver’s, Legacies from the Living Room offers readers guidance through illness, loss, and bereavement—it offers the answer to pain: a love-grief equation.
