Summary of Being Mortal by Atul Gawande | Includes Analysis   Preview: Being Mortal, written by Atul Gawande, brings to light an array of concepts involving death, mortality, aging, and terminal illness. Gawande includes extensive research and chronicles the stories of his patients, other doctors’ patients, and his own family members. The resulting book informs readers about many circumstances and scenarios that can help people find the best route through their or their family members’ final days, months, or years…   Key Takeaways Nursing homes were not created to assist the elderly with their dependency on others or provide a better option than poorhouses. They were created to clear out hospital beds. Assisted living arose from the need for an alternative to nursing homes that could give patients more independence and control over their lives. At the end of their lives, most people want more than to merely survive, which is where medical institutions, nursing homes, and assisted living can fall flat. People need to ask themselves what would make life worth living when they are ill, old, frail, or dependent on others for daily care.   PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.    Inside this Instaread of Being Mortal:  Key Takeaways of the book  Introduction to the important people in the book  Analysis of the Key Takeaways   About the Author With Instaread, you can get the key takeaways and analysis of a book in 15 minutes.

In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering. Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified. Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERIn this wonderful book, Jon Katz, the owner of Bedlam Farm, learns once again about the unexpected places animals can take us. As trained hospice volunteers visiting homes and nursing facilities in upstate New York, Katz and his affectionate and intuitive border collie Izzy bring comfort and canine companionship to people who most need it. An eighty-year-old Alzheimer's patient smiles for the first time in months when she feels Izzy's soft fur. A retired logger joyfully remembers his own beloved dog. As Izzy bonds with patients and Katz focuses on their families, the author begins to come to terms with his own life, discovering dark realities he has never confronted. Meanwhile, Lenore, a spirited, bright-eyed black Labrador puppy, arrives at Bedlam Farm. Her genial personality and boundless capacity for affection steer Katz out of the shadows, rekindle his love of working with dogs, and restore his connection to the farm and the animals and people around him.

Hospice is a great blessing to many people; the patient, the family of the patient, the nurses, the aides, the doctors, the chaplains, the social workers, the office staffs, and the marketers or educators. We are here to help the family move through denial, the emotional pain of seeing a loved one not doing well physically, and the fear of the unknown. The hospice movement has grown dramatically in recent years. Hospice in the United States has grown from a volunteer-led movement to improve care for people dying alone, isolated, or in hospitals, to a significant part of the health care system. Throughout this book we will walk through the lives of many different individuals and their life during hospice. We will laugh, cry and be amazed by their insights and conversations with angels of light and angels of darkness. the spiritual world is very important to one facing death.

Why do some people contact hospice when a family member is in a serious medical crisis and some people don't? Is it the fear of the unknown? What happens if you call hospice? What does hospice care actually involve, anyway? That's Good Grease ever so gently helps readers to understand what hospice care is all about through the author's stories and experience gained from 20 years as a hospice patient contact volunteer. Turning to any page the reader will learn that hospice care is nothing even close to what has been experienced before. This book may surprise readers when they learn that: -Food plays an important part in hospice care, but not necessarily for nourishment. -Family pets are included in the plan of care for the person on hospice service. -Humor is used quite often in hospice care. -The person and their family are actually in charge of their hospice care. -Every hospice is mandated by Medicare to have volunteers. Rick Schneider has a manner of talking to the reader in a way that removes the apprehension of the word "hospice." This book, like hospice itself, is unique. As the reader walks into its pages they soon learn that the title, a quote from a person on hospice service, perfectly describes the common sense of hospice care.

Un’infermiera e una volontaria incrociano le loro vite in un Hospice, un reparto creato sul tipo di quelli di vari ospedali italiani per accogliere malati terminali: persone la cui aspettativa di vita non supera, per l’appunto, i 120 giorni.“Entro in quelle stanze come una persona e sono in contatto non più con un insegnante, un elettricista, un geometra, ma con un’altra persona, sofferente. L’incontro impone a entrambi un mettersi in gioco pericoloso, dove non ci sono difese e lo scambio a livello personale è indispensabile. Non c’è più teoria, ma solo fatti: non c’è più l’ombra della morte, ma solo la sua prepotente presenza. Non esiste più il tempo, ma solo la certezza di averne poco e l’oculatezza di non sprecarlo più.Non riuscirei più tanto facilmente a ritornare come infermiera in una normale corsia d’ospedale; forse perché, per la prima volta, ho potuto lavorare in un posto dove si è dato il giusto valore al tempo e ho potuto ‘essere’ infermiera. Con tutta me stessa”.
