Dying the Right Way is written for seniors, families, and caregivers. Dying the Right Way prepares seniors and families for the time when caregiving is needed, and offers a system for caregiving in the home for either family caregivers or for monitoring professional caregivers. Dying the Right Way extends the caregiving experience to assist seniors in planning for the time when they might need care: through the document preparation phase, the search for a residential facility, life support, the dying experience, funeral planning, and settling of the estate.
