Overview

There s a quiet revolution happening in the way we die. More than 1.5 million Americans a year die in hospice care nearly 44 percent of all deaths and a vast industry has sprung up to meet the growing demand. Once viewed as a New Age indulgence, hospice is now a $14 billion business and one of the most successful segments in health care. Changing the Way We Die, by award-winning journalists Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel, is the first book to take a broad, penetrating look at the hospice landscape.

Changing the Way We Die is a vital resource for anyone who wants to be prepared to face life s most challenging and universal event. You will learn:

  • Hospice use is soaring, yet most people come too late to get the full benefits.
  • With the age tsunami, it becomes even more critical for families and patients to choose end-of-life care wisely.
  • Hospice at its best is much more than a way to relieve the suffering of dying. It is a way to live.
