Taking control of our inevitable journey through aging and death.
By Ken Hillman, professor of Intensive Care.
am acutely aware of my own mortality, both because of my age (born in 1945) and the various ailments or diagnoses, which pepper my life. Though I have put my best effort into caring for myself and being healthy on all levels, the inevitable must come.
So the topic of end of life care has come into very clear focus for me. When my parent's end of life care inevitably came, my brother and I felt lost and ill-informed as to options and best choices. I sincerely wish that Professor Hillman’s book had been available then, as a much-needed guide.
