eBook

 

The “End of Life Guideline Series” is a compilation of Barbara Karnes’ four books on the end of life. This series, dealing with death, is available in hard copy or ebook versions.
When you or someone you know has been told by a physician that they have a disease that may not be treatable, life changes instantly. At such a time people enter a phase of life for which they often have no preparation. No one tells us how to live with a life-threatening illness, what to expect when someone is dying, what to do to help, how to address our fear of death and dying and how to grieve.

The Series begins with the guidance “A Time To Live” offers to a person who has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness.
The “End of Life Guideline Series” progresses to “Gone From My Sight” (the ‘Little Blue Book’) which explains the stages of death, the dying process and the signs of approaching death that begin months before death from disease and guides the reader to the moment of death.

The Eleventh Hour” offers information, ideas and support for a caregiver or family member, people who are often alone as their loved one is dying, to care for a dying person in the hours to minutes before death and just after. 

The final section of this compilation, "My Friend, I Care," is an exploration of the normal grieving process; guidance on living with the loss of a loved one.


The goal of this series is to neutralize some of the fear that an unpredictable future may bring.  Knowledge of the dying process and its natural and normal unfolding can help create a meaningful and comforting experience as a loved one journeys from life. It is written in a simple, gentle voice. It is a short and valuable read. 

Following a death, we often have questions about the disease progression and concerned memories. The “End of Life Guideline Series” prepares its readers for the natural, normal process of dying and grief. You can find comfort in these books on end of life even years after the death of a loved one.

I lost my brother, and best friend last year. He was moved from Fla to AL for me to take care of him. I was lucky to spend 2 months with him before he passed. Hospice gave me "Gone from my Sights'. It was a great help to me, since I was at his side as each phase was happening. I have worked in healthcare, critical care for twenty years, but its not the same when it's your family member. I always felt for the family, because I knew the loss they felt. I plan to order several of these to give to some of my friends that will be, or have been through this themselves. What a great gift you have given to all that read your books. God Bless You.

I have jus gone through the loss of my dear wife of 25 ears. She progressed from a hospital setting, to a rehabilitation unit, to a nursing home and then eventually back home. There she engaged home health. Finally, it evolved to in home hospice and eventually as taken to a hospital sponsored hospice environment. It was an eight bed facility and performed in an excellent manner. About three days later she went to meet her relatives and friends in heaven. The Hospice experience was super quality. I was provided a copy of Ms. Barbara's blue book. The stages presented seemed to follow the text to the letter. As the survivor, I did not feel apprehensive at all. She talked to me recently and directed me to her book on Grief. She is a gifted nurse and teacher. I have a new hero: A pretty blonde from northwest America....Terry

The information in these books were very helpful to me and my family. It is extremely difficult and painful to watch someone you love in the dying process. I felt like Barbara was there to help me through it.
