Hospice, A Labor of Love
by Denise Glavan, Cindy Longanacre, John Spivey
Sharing stories of real people they have encountered as professional hospice caregivers, the authors explore both the practical and philosophical aspects of the hospice movement. Straightforward and nontechnical in approach, Hospice, A Labor of Love offers help and inspiration to hospice volunteers, pastoral counselors, and the families of those who are receiving hospice care.
"The reader finds here basic information about death and dying, the best care that can be given to a dying person, guidance for those left behind, as well as practical directions on ethical and legal decisions. But beyond such information, the book can best be described as 'a light unto the path' for persons and families losing a loved one."
