Today, in increasing numbers, terminally ill people are choosing to spend their last days at home in the warmth of familiar surroundings, rather than in an impersonal hospital or nursing home. Coming Home will provide you with information, inspiration, and sensitive yet straightforward answers to questions such as:Can I handle a home death?How do I deal with my grief?Can we afford to stay at home?Can I give an injection?Can pain be controlled at home?How do I prevent bedsores?How can I find meaning in the dying process?What do I need to know about legal issues?First published in 1981, this groundbreaking step-by-step guide has been used to train hospice staff and volunteers for over two decades. Like a supportive friend sitting with you at the kitchen table, Deborah Duda helps you to create an experience that makes your loved one's final weeks as comfortable and meaningful as possible.
