Final passages : positive choices for the dying and their loved ones by Judith C Ahronheim( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Final Passages is a caring and responsible book that affirms life even as it deals practically with the dilemmas faced by the dying and their families. It is a frank discussion about our choices, the most difficult ones we will ever make, as we, or the ones we love, face the end of life. Final Passages was written to give the dying and their loved ones the medically sound advice they are urgently seeking to guide them through life's most frightening passage. Drawing upon the expertise of health care professionals from many disciplines and specialties as well as lawyers, financial planners, and the diverse experiences of patients themselves, Dr. Judith Ahronheim and Doron Weber show with great compassion that it is possible to live and die with courage and dignity. The terror we feel when considering the dreaded possibility of suffering, pain, and a diminished existence at the end of life can be overcome when we take control of the dying process. Final Passages explains when and how medical technology can help us, how to manage pain and fight depression, how the terminally ill body will peacefully shut itself down, how comfort care and hospices can provide physical relief and emotional support, how we can protect our legal rights both to our bodies and to the possessions we have worked hard to accumulate over a lifetime. For most of us, an abrupt, premature exit from life is unthinkable; yet despair, and a yearning for peace, can often turn our thoughts to suicide. The authors deal directly with the controversy that has arisen over this issue. In Final Passages, the dying and their families will find the answers that will help them to work through those thoughts and to embrace with tenacity the challenge, and the catharsis, of living life fully to its end
