Overview

When we are thrust into the role of caregiver for a loved one who is in the process of dying, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Yet it's a situation millions of us face every year with virtually no sort of preparation or guidance. With Graceful Exit, Dr. Gustavo Ferrer offers an all-in-one resource for anyone tasked with managing the end-of-life care of a loved one.

Dr. Ferrer shares the essential steps we need to take in a way that can be tailored to our unique situation. Through checklists, plans, and step-by-step instructions reflecting his years of experience supporting patients and their families, Dr. Ferrer offers clear and compassionate guidance for the most difficult issues, including:

  • What are your rights under Medicare and health insurance?
  • When should you bring your family together?
  • How can you be a caregiver without burning yourself out?
  • What are the pros and cons of advanced medical treatment versus hospice at each end-of-life stage?
  • Most importantly, how do we say goodbye in a way that brings healing, closure, and peace?


It's the last news we want to hear--that someone we love is dying. Yet it's an inevitable part of life. With Graceful Exit, Dr. Ferrer offers this much-needed guide through the medical, legal, financial, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of dying and death.
