Rev. Dr. Boatwright (palliative care and hospice specialist, Stanford Univ. Hospital) guides readers through the last stages of life, from illness and care to final arrangements and grief. She includes case studies, along with checklists for such tasks as choosing a hospice facility, putting affairs in order, and dealing with the deceased’s estate. Boatwright provides legal information, ideas for memorial services, and more. Of particular help is the “Guide to Key Pages,” where readers can find the answers they need in order to do things like support a terminally ill loved one or decipher medical bills.
VERDICT Excellent in every way; recommended for all libraries, and readers facing end-of-life challenges.
