By Your Side, A Guide for Caring for the Dying at Home
What would you do if your loved one was diagnosed with a life threatening or life ending illness? Or your elderly loved one is rapidly declining from old age and YOU were their caregiver? Where would you get your support? Where would you learn how to take care of them? End of life expert, Barbara Karnes, RN has created the tool that you would need--
By Your Side, A Guide for Caring for the Dying at Home is knowledge and support for providing care at home. It is written for the caregiver.
This 72 page, spiral-bound guidebook addresses end of life choices (life sustaining, comfort care), advance directives, and funeral planning. It details signs of approaching death (what to look for, what to do); describes end of life care at home; pain management; care of dementia patients at end of life; and, very importantly, how to take care of yourself as you fulfill your role as caregiver.
Taking care of someone as the end of their life approaches is not the same as taking care of someone who is going to get better.
This specific knowledge and guidance won’t take away the sadness you carry, but it will give you the confidence to know that you are providing the best care possible.
The journey of caring for your special person can be challenging and exhausting. My hope is that with this guidebook and the support of others (family, community, and professionals) this experience will be a special time for you that will become a sacred memory.
