End of Life Issues

End of Life Issues (PDF ebook)

Edited by Healey, Justin

Death eventually comes to claim us all, yet most people live in denial of it until they are confronted with their own mortality. In order to ultimately have a 'good death' - such as dying comfortably at home, supported by family and friends and effective services - discussion, de...cisions and planning are required to put things into place, knowing your family is acting according to your wishes. Planning for the end of one's life may entail making an advance care plan; funeral and estate planning; palliative care; understanding the legal status and complexities of voluntary euthanasia; and being prepared for what to expect during a loved one's final hours, including ensuing feelings of bereavement and loss. This book explores a range of issues for us all to anticipate and evaluate at some stage: end of life attitudes and decisions; end of life care; and coping with death and grief. What are your wishes and rights (and those of your loved ones) when it comes to the personal and practical considerations we have to deal with at the end of life? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index. Titles in the Issues in Society series are individual resource books which provide an overview on a specific subject comprised of facts and opinions. The information in this resource book is not from any single author, publication or organisation. The unique value of the Issues in Society series lies in its diversity of content and perspectives. The content comes from a wide variety of sources and includes: newspaper reports and opinion pieces, website fact sheets, magazine and journal articles, statistics and surveys, government reports, and literature from special interest groups.
