Publisher's Summary

When we fear death, we miss out on a lot of life. This book hopes to change that.

While hospices care for persons in their final days, hospice is not about death. It's all about LIFE - real, nitty-gritty, poignant, funny, challenging, and bittersweet life in all its beauty and imperfection.

Those who have experienced hospice usually speak in reverential tones of this service and find themselves fearing death less because they have seen all the incredible life that happens until the final moment. But those unfamiliar with hospice often misunderstand and fear it, and the end of life.

Through first-hand accounts that range from humorous to heart-wrenchingly honest, Carla shares the stories that continue to teach her the lessons of what it means to be truly present with ourselves and each other in this perfectly imperfect experience called life.

    Story
    "Understanding hospice care."

    I am happy that I read this book now. My own mother is under hospice care. She has a wonderful nurse named Devon and we just love her. But this book has helped me understand what hospice is really about. It's not about death alone. It's about living now being present and learning to "holding space". I am learning to appreciate the time that I have with my mother and I feel blessed. Getting to take care of her like she took care of me all my life has given me strength and peace for what's ahead. Thank you for sharing your stories.
