I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel the authors of a new book entitled “Changing The Way We Die-Compassionate End-Of-Life Care And The Hospice Movement.”
In our interview together we explore the Hospice system, and how amazing well it is performing as helping families dealing with a loved one at the end-stages of their life. Through the stories of the caregivers, patients, and researchers both Fran and Sheila examine the remarkable shift in practices around dying and look at the changes ahead if profits replace a dying-well philosophy.
As they discuss with me we are in a society that treasures “youth” above all else. Their book offers the reader realistic advice for dealing with life beyond the vitality of youth.
I hope you enjoy our interview together, and if you want more information please click here to be directed to their website.
