This book will help you turn the fear and pain of losing someone into a memorable, and yes, even joyous event for family and friends to cherish and pass to each generation to follow.

Hospice. Some take those seven letters as a death sentence, but this form of care does not equate to imminent death.

In her new book, “Hospice: The Last Responder,” author Ellen Jane Windham offers patients and their families a comprehensive guide to all things hospice care. “Education is vital since hospice care is so often misunderstood,” Windham said. “This book will help you turn the fear and pain of losing someone into a memorable, and yes, even joyous event for family and friends to cherish and pass to each generation to follow.”

Windham has been a hospice nurse for over 15 years and throughout her career, seen countless families struggle to make the decision whether or not to place their loved one in hospice care.

“Many people equate hospice with neglect, suffering or even physician-assisted suicide,” Windham said. “Hospice is not about any of these things. Hospice attempts in every way possible, for each person diagnosed with a terminal illness, regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, religion or financial situation to complete their journey with the greatest comfort at home, wherever home may be, surrounded family.”

“Hospice: The Last Responder” captures the true essence of hospice care and explains everything readers need and want to know about the process, putting loved ones at ease.

Look for a Spanish translation coming soon.
