A must read for everyone

This book serves as a guide to our lives and how we want the end of our lives to be - pain free and loved. Helping our loved ones navigate end of life or our own end of life is difficult. Gawande wrote a valuable book to guide us. I've given copies to all of my family and friends and recommend it in my teaching on caring for someone with dementia disease. It is helpful for anyone who is dealing with or caring for someone with a terminal condition.

A MUST read for all senior citizens and their families.
