If you're over the age of 50, the odds are good that you're either going to die from a terminal illness, or you're going to end-up caring for someone who will be diagnosed with one.
Statistically, if you're in the age range of 50 - 65, or close to it, you're now facing the following alarming odds:
1 in 5 will face a terminal illness due to some form of heart disease.
1 in 7 will face a terminal illness due to some form of cancer.
1 in 23 will face a terminal illness due to complications of a stroke.
Most people truly ARE NOT prepared to take-on the responsibility of becoming a care-giver to a family member or close friend.
When we are put in the care-giving position, we truly don't know what to expect; we don't know what is considered normal or abnormal behavior as far as the bodily dying process is concerned, and basically, we don't know what to do or not do. After all, we didn't learn this in school.
This is where the popular and enlightening e-book, œThe Dying Process and Other Things We Don't Talk About Around the Dinner Table, comes into play.
œThis book is highly educational, inspirational and extrenely thought-provoking, states J. Mitchell, a retired hospice nurse from Reno, Nevada, who read the original manuscript.
Mary S. from Hayward, California also read the original manuscript and commented, œI wish I had access to this information about nine years ago when I was tasked to take care of my father who eventually died of lung and pancreatic cancer after a five month battle with his disease. This is an invaluable resource of information.
