Abstract:

"The Rights of the Dying is a book for people dealing with life-challenging diseases, but even more so it is a book for spouses and companions, parents and children, siblings and friends. It examines the physical and emotional experiences of death and helps the reader find a way to say good-bye."--BOOK JACKET. "In gentle, compassionate language, David Kessler outlines the seventeen rights of the dying, principles that will help people face death with dignity. For family members, the book provides a vocabulary, a way of communicating with one another as well as with doctors and hospital staff. It also provides a way of allowing the dying family member to participate in all decisions and express his or her own feelings and emotions."--BOOK JACKET. "Bringing together his own experiences with the insights of people he has counseled, David Kessler compassionately teaches us how to talk with the dying and how to listen to the dying, how to maintain hope while preparing for death, and how we can find peace and take comfort at one of life's most profound moments by honoring the rights of the dying."--Jacket.
