Imagine Being On Your Death Bed…
Who do you want to be around you?
How would you like to be treated?
Death… is indeed a heavy topic.
In Being Mortal, Atul Gawande addresses end-of-life care, hospice care and his personal reflections and stories.
It has been said that if we live each day as if it was our last, one day we’d surely be right.
Life and death is an interesting paradox isn’t it?
We don’t carry anything to Earth when we are born…
… and we can’t take anything with us when we are gone.
All we have left is the memories of the people we’ve touched, the things we’ve created and our legacy.
Being Mortal is written by Atul Gawande and first published in 2014. It is truly a valuable book since death is such a heavy topic and not many people want to talk about it. Is end-of-life care good enough? What else can we do to help patients who are facing the end of life?

Here’s what you’ll discover…
--— Chapter 1: Being Old — Being More Independent
--— Chapter 2: Falling Apart
--— Chapter 3: Depending on Others
--— Chapter 4: The Assistance Necessary
--— Chapter 5: How to Improve Nursing Home Life
--— Chapter 6: At the End

    👍Worth reading

    In this book, he discusses the breakdown and death of the body, along with the problem of our current care system for both the elderly in nursing homes, and even for those in the hospital suffering from a terminal illness. The discussion of death is something we all try to actively avoid at all costs. He also discusses the shift in this. All of us want independence and we want to be able to live on our own. However, he says at the end that there is always death on the horizon. A lot of the elderly see themselves as fiercely independent. For some people, handling the reality of aging is different.
