Wow. This book was enlightening. I have aging parents and have a deep interest in the topic of elder care. I want to make sure my parents are comfortable in their old age. I want to repay them for all they have done me as their child by making sure they die with the greatest amount of dignity possible. This audiobook was quite an eye opener for me about what really goes on in nursing facilities and other long term care facilities and how modern medicine sometimes fail those who need it most. The author doesn’t spend time pointing fingers, he just lays out the truth for us to see, ponder, and then apply what we can to our own lives. His words are honest, but sometimes hard to bear, but they spur us on to help give quality of life to those we love who are aging or suffering from terminal illness, helping them to end their stories on their own terms. While I wouldn’t say this book is uplifting, I did find it comforting as it inspired me to do right by my parents.
