Getting Lucky: The Story of Angel's Gate Animal Hospice
Susan Marino

June 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Brutus, a Rottweiler who had suffered a lesion in his vertebrae, was barely able to move when he was brought to Angel's Gate hospice and rehabilitation center. Now, after months of hydro- and physical therapy, he enjoys daily walks. Thanks to Susan Marino, who runs the center in her Long Island home, more than 150 animals, from dogs and cats to horses and birds, are given the kind of hospice care usually reserved for people. Some recover from their life-threatening injuries or illnesses, while others are given refuge through their final days.

Getting Lucky tells the story of Lucky-a dog who's sent to Angel's Gate to die but instead finds a whole new way of living-and 20 other animals at the hospice. But it's also the story of a woman with a mission. Marino, a former pediatric nurse, started Angel's Gate 12...


In the Midst of Life
Charles Rose
1588381463
Oct 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Where does a retired English professor go to find meaning in his later years? Mr. Rose chose to be a hospice volunteer, a journey that took him down the back roads of Lee County, Alabama, into the sometimes gritty home environments of hospice patients. Mr. Rose calls it the "we of me", that sense of connecting to some larger network of human existence. His memoir captures the patient's simple need to have some one to talk to, listen to, and just be with. Mr. Rose describes the awkward intimacy of relating to patients, making small talk with their caregivers, while trying to respond to their need for "companioning." In the Midst of Life is a rare and detailed look into the experience of hospice volunteering. --Amanda Graves, former social worker at Capital Hospice and Hospice of D.C.

Handbook for Mortals: Guidance for People Facing Serious Illness
Joanne Lynn
0195146018
January 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Written for caregivers as well as the dying, Handbook for Mortals is an excellent resource for anyone facing the end of life. Authors Joanne Lynn, M.D., and Joan Harrold, M.D., offer sensitive and practical advice for the ambiguous final stage of a life-threatening illness--when hope for a recovery is waning and the patient and family members are turning toward a different horizon, that of accepting and supporting an imminent death. For the most part, the authors focus on physical concerns such as pain management, artificial feeding, and an especially poignant passage about assisted suicide.

Because of their backgrounds, the authors are also comfortable discussing the emotional complexities of dying, such as offering advice on giving and receiving forgiveness and resolving conflicts in close relationships. (Lynn is...

The Hospice Handbook: A Complete Guide
Larry Beresford, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
0316091383
March 4, 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Once way-stations run by religious orders to give respite to those on pilgrimages, today hospices provide care for dying people. Their philosophy of care is dedicated to the physical comfort and emotional support of the terminal patient. The hospice movement also affirms the idea that the patient deserves to be completely informed about his or her medical condition and treatment alternatives. Beresford, a San Francisco-based health policy writer, provides a complete, if somewhat dry, account of the hospice movement. But this is more than an intellectual discussion of a health-care policy; it also addresses practical questions. Beresford devotes the first two chapters to an explanation of hospice care and how to know when it is needed. In subsequent chapters he describes a typical hospice team (social worker,...

Innovations in Hospice Architecture

March 7, 2006
Hardcover

Book Description
Societies around the globe are aging at an unprecedented rate. This trend is particularly pronounced in Japan, Russia, Western Europe, and in the United States. Palliative care consists of care provided to persons who are in the final stages of a terminal illness. Hospice care, however, is administered to persons of all ages.

Innovations in Hospice Architecture responds to the need for a theoretically based reference book summarizing key historical as well as recent developments with respect to this rapidly evolving building type. The objective is to present an overview of the historical origins of the contemporary hospice, the diverse variations on the basic premise of hospice care, to review the scant architectural literature published on this subject to date, and to present a series of case studies of...
