Dying Well Prepared: Conversations and Choices, A Guideby Alan Bingham


Conversations and choices about how to prepare for end-of-life can be difficult because we tend not to discuss such topics readily during our life. However, this is one rite of passage that we shall all face, so it makes sense to understand what our choices may be and how to address them. Everyone over eighteen should read this guide and be prepared because we never know when our time is up. It may be the result of an illness or accident or simply aging out. But news of limited life expectancy, it seems, always springs as a surprise.

What do you need to do to prepare, what should you consider, and how do you go about preparing? All questions in the guide book are answered along with some suggested ways of discussing the issues with friends and family. Managing your end-of-life journey can be eased to enable you to spend it well. This is the second edition of this book and contains more updated useful information.
