Aging, Angst & Alleluias Podcast

Today's conversation with Barbara Karnes is to announce her new book, "By Your Side," (A Guide for Caring for the Dying at Home) and the discussion of how vital End of Life Doula and Dementia Doula work is becoming in our society. Her new book is one of the best for family caregivers and since Barbara has been a family caregiver herself, her knowledge of Hospice and the experience in that field is exceptional.

Barbara Karnes, is an RN Award-Winning End of Life Educator, an Award-Winning Nurse, an NHPCO Hospice Innovator Award Winner 2018 and 2015 International Humanitarian Woman of the Year.

While at the bedside of hundreds of people during the dying process, this Hospice Pioneer noticed that each death followed a near-identical script. Each person went through the stages of death almost the same way and most families came to her with similar questions. These realizations led Barbara to write "Gone From My Sight", (The Little Blue Book), which changed the hospice industry.

"Gone From My Sight" also remains to be the most widely used patient/family educational booklet on the signs of approaching death. It has been in print continuously since 1985 and has sold over 35 million copies worldwide. With its publication and distribution, Barbara created one of the essential tools in the end-of-life movement today.
