Last Wish: Stories to Inspire a Peaceful Passing (Updated Edition with New Hospice Story)
on May 07, 2012
Once again I enjoyed the candor of Dr.Van Scoy and the reality of all the diverse cases she wrote about. The clear message is to document what you want when the end is near. If you don't document it then at the very least have the conversation with the person empowered to carry out your wishes. The compass needs to point to your wishes. Being a Palliative Care Team member I can only hope to read more and enlighten more patients and families in learning what suffering is and what their definition of quality of life is. I hope everyone reads this book no matter what scenario you can relate with and plans in advance their last wish.
