    I saw this originally (although I recall it looking different) when my uncle was in the VA several years ago after having a stroke..I was his primary caretaker through the end of his life and I found this booklet (or one like it) to be very useful.

    I was able to talk to him about what he wanted for his end of life...he was VERY unrealistic, but still it helped open up some areas of conversation, and given that (ironically) I was not very close to the man at all, I needed all the help I could get.

    I wish I had some of the information at the time of my grandmothers death, but we had never talked about it and so some difficult, and untimaltly wrong decisions were made.

    some of the princip inals this book, are now coming into play again as I am the caregiver to my parents who are both in poor health

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
