“The Eleventh Hour” is a booklet that offers information, ideas and support for caregivers in the hours to minutes before death and just after. Having this information inspires and empowers the caregiver while reducing fear.
The hours to minutes before imminent death are generally filled with fear and helplessness for anyone at the bedside. Most of us have no realistic experience in this realm. Our tendencies are to want to “fix” things, even when the time for fixing has past.
The goal of this booklet is to help those present at the bedside create a meaningful, comforting experience for their loved one’s journey from life in this world. That experience will be the caregiver’s sacred memory forever.
Written for the hands-on-caregiver, family or professional, “The Eleventh Hour” is a guiding resource, a support for caregivers. It is appropriate as a textbook for volunteer training in Transitional, Vigil and No One Dies Alone programs, for hospitals, for nursing facilities, parish nursing and Hospice and Palliative Care agencies. Most of all, it is for families faced with caring for their loved one in the weeks, days and hours of approaching death.
Combined with the booklet “Gone From My Sight” a caregiver will have knowledge of the signs of approaching death and ideas for what to do, say and how to interact with the person who is approaching death. Together these two booklets reduce the fear of death and dying that most of us have when we are involved with end of life.
Like its companions, “Gone From My Sight,” “My Friend, I Care,” and “A Time To Live,” “The Eleventh Hour” is written in large print and the information is conveyed in a simple, direct yet gentle manner.
